His Holiness shoes are exhibited in a case alongside a photograph by the
renowned artist Sylvie Fleury. The shoes covered the miles marking the
spiritual footsteps of His Holiness, as he traveled the world spreading
his message of Peace. During the course of his journeys, the Dalai Lama
took great comfort from the shoes as he had them resoled several times.
As Ms Fleury's photograph of them depicts, they seem to radiate the
energy field of his Holiness.

plaque with their name on it will continue with the shoes as they tour
with The Missing Peace project on its many stops around the world. The
cost of acquiring the shoes is tax deductible as the funds go to the
Missing Peace Project sponsored by Dalai Lama foundation and the
Committee of 100 for Tibet.

of a pair of his walking shoes to support the Committee of 100 and Dalai
Lama Foundation" States Holly Baxter, Principal. "While this is not an
