As part of an effort to raise awareness of the plight of institutionalized children, the Dalai Lama will address the crowds at the Gibson Amphitheatre on Sunday, Feb. 21.

The spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists will deliver a speech titled "Cultivating Compassion and the Needs of Vulnerable Children."

"We're honored to have His Holiness come to demonstrate his solidarity with our work," said Karen Gordon, founder and chief executive officer of Los Angeles-based Whole Child International, a non-governmental agency that works to improve care for vulnerable children worldwide.

"His compassion and wisdom will inform our efforts, and help us identify new objectives as we strive to ensure that all children receive the loving care they need to fulfill their potential," said Gordon.

Singer Sheryl Crow will be the musical guest.

Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, met privately with President Barack Obama at the White House on Thursday, Feb. 18.
