Monks at the Beach

By now it should be the Iron (Metal) Tiger year, all around the globe, so Happy New Year… 2137 on the Tibetan calendar [yeah, all you Gregorians are like, 127 years behind the times… :)].

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama gave a New Year’s Address in Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh, India, and urged Tibetans to eschew festive celebrations and engage in religious ceremonies and prayers in remembrance of the Tibetan people’s suffering.

His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, produced a virtual Losar card as a shockwave flash file on his website.

I cleaned the house and made dumplings… and today I hung some fresh prayer flags.
