Coconuts Jakarta, August 6, 2015 - The 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, will be making his way to Java early next month to speak at the 1st Annual Malang Peace Conference.

The conference, which will take place from September 6-9, aims to promote tolerance and world peace. 

The Dalai Lama will be speaking on the first day of the conference, along with fellow Nobel Peace Prize winner and former President of East Timor José Ramos-Horta, Minister of Religion Lukman Hakim and President Joko Widodo.

The conference was organized the Raden Rahmat Islamic University of Malang. The head of the conference committee, Dimas Iqbal Romadhon, told CNN Indonesia that Malang was a perfect place for such an event as it is the home of numerous religious organizations that all coexist in harmony.

Dimas confirmed that the Dalai Lama was coming to the event, but said they were still taking care of his visa. He also said that the Dalai Lama was planning to visit Borobudur in Magelang while he was in Indonesia.
