About this event
His Holiness the Dalai Lama is turning 86! The Great 14th Dalai Lama has spent his life dedicated to the wellbeing of all through constantly enacting his vast vision, through his spiritual leadership, his social activism, his engagement with scientists and much, much more. He has touched the lives of countless people and served as a beacon of inspiration to the world.
His Holiness’ birthday is an auspicious opportunity for us to reflect on how we can emulate his incredible qualities, rejoice in his long life and pay special attention to our Buddhist practice.
We’ll celebrate this day with a talk by Geshe Namdak on His Holiness four commitments: encouraging people to be happy, promoting interreligious harmony, preserving Tibetan language and culture which is rooted in the Buddhist tradition of Nalanda, and reviving knowledge of the value of ancient Indian knowledge among the youth of India today. Finally, Geshe Namdak will lead us in prayers for His Holiness. See you online!
