You’re invited to a very special Birthday Celebration!
Recently when His Holiness was asked what he wished for on his birthday he replied:
“The same as all beings, I wish to live a happy life. We all face a lot of problems that are essentially our own creation. The real point here is with our emotions. Unless we have some knowledge of how to tackle them we’ll run into trouble. My life is dedicated to the well-being of others. If humanity is happy, then I’ll be happy, because each of us is dependent on others.”
Please join us in the Gompa as we gather together to celebrate His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Birthday with Long Life Prayers, offerings, chai and birthday cake.
