WELCOMING THE DALAI LAMA & CELEBRATING TIBETAN CULTURE

May 10, 2013 | 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.

Free and open to the public

His Holiness the 14thDalai Lama, a simple monk with an open heart, will be in New Orleans speaking to all of us about compassion, non-violence, and the intrinsic quality of resilience that animates our vibrant, strong and connected community. Exiled from his beloved country of Tibet at 25 years of age, a refugee for the last 54 years, His Holiness has devoted his life to the community of the world as a voice for human rights.

 We invite you to join us in celebrating his open heart and learning about his teachings. Tibetan monk Tsering Phunsok will perform a Sacred Dance of Tibet and speak about its significance to the culture. Hear from world renowned speaker and author Whitney Stewart, Dr. Ronald Marks, dean of the Tulane School of Social Work, and Tibetan professor Ngawang Legshe who will collectively talk about His Holiness, the culture, and how this whole event came to fruition in New Orleans. This night will be packed full of information on Tibetan culture. A drum circle will end the evening.

The evening festivities will include:

  • Sacred Dance of Tibet, performed by Tsering Phuntsok, a visiting Tibetan monk from   Dharamsala, India. 
  •  An informative film clip on the history of the Dalai Lama and his country Tibet.
  •  A talk from Dr Marks, the dean of the Tulane School of Social Work
  •  A talk from Ngawang about the fundamentals of resiliency in Tibetan culture
  •  Activities for children & adults that reflect Tibetan culture: coloring mandalas, creating Thangkas, writing prayers for the prayer wheel, making prayer flags
  •  A complimentary meal of curry and eggrolls will be served.
  •  Donations for Tsering's monastery and family in India would be greatly appreciated.

For more information, call (504) 569-9070.
