The gathering of some 65 people had earlier begun with a singing bowl presentation by Guillermo Cabrera and was covered by the local TV Channel 10. Earlier in the morning, TV channel 4 featured Aloma Sellanes speaking about the life and vision of the Dalai Lama.

In Petropolis, some 75 people attended a presentation by Miguel Berredo on the life and vision of the Dalai Lama.
