The highlight was undoubtedly when two children came up on stage and conferred on the Dalai Lama a medal and the honorary title of "The Knight of the Rainbow and the Starry Sky." They explained to the crowd that the rainbow signified that His Holiness works for the entire world and the starry sky signified that he works for the entire universe. Then His Holiness led everyone in a one-minute silent meditation on peace.

"That evening, Lama Yeshe was about to give some students a Vajrasattva empowerment in his room at the Granada Palace Hotel when it was found that his dorje and bell had been left in Barcelona. No matter, Lama picked up two tuberose spikes and used those instead. At exactly those moments in the ritual when music is offered and the bell usually rung, the bells in the church next door began to chime every time."
