Please join us in traditionally welcoming the Tibetan New Year, the year of the Iron Rat.
Geshe Lobsang and Geshe Namgyal will begin the new year celebration with early morning prayers.
Monday, February 24, prayers begin at 5:30 am, concluding at 7:00 am.
After prayers, please join us for a light continental breakfast. His Holiness the Dalai Lama took the opportunity of Losar to express his wishes on how we can achieve happiness:
Since everybody wants to be happy, and no one wants to be miserable, the cause of happiness is giving benefit and joy. If you lead your life in benefiting others, and not harming them, that's a meaningful life, a life that has”Tashi” (good fortune). On that basis saying ”Tashi Delek” means ”May you be happy in the here and now, and, as we Buddhists say, you may finally achieve definitive goodness.”
Tashi Delek, Happy New Year.
