Tibetan New Year


Losar Tashi Delek! 

Happy Tibetan New Year!!

We're not really into celebrating this year since we're still acutely aware that individuals inside Tibet continue to self-immolate to try to draw attention to the suffering they experience under China's heavy hand. I invite you to learn more about these cries for help

Losar will be a time of reflection in my home. There will be fasting (and maybe just a little feasting) and prayer. The Losar altar will be modest and I'll share the blessed fruit and kapse (Tibetan cookies) with friends and family. 

I wish you all a prosperous and purposeful year of new adventures and experiences.
