Announcement from TCSBC:

May 20, 2014

Dear Tibetan Cultural Organizations of North America,
We are pleased to announce the upcoming visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Vancouver BC in October 2014. We hope you can help us spread the word to your community and attend the event.

During His Holiness’ four-day visit to Vancouver, the Tibetan Cultural Society of BC and
Tsengdok Monastery will be hosting his one-day teaching on October 23, 2014. Here are the details of our planned event:

Topic: Avalokiteshvara Empowerment
Date: Thursday October 23, 2014
Location: UBC Thunderbird Arena, Vancouver, BC
Time: 8am-11:30am and 1:30pm-3:30pm


There are two sessions 1) in the morning Avalokiteshvara Initiation (Chenrezig Wang) and 2) in the afternoon His Holiness will give an introductory Buddhist teaching based on Geshe Langri Thangpa’s Eight Verses of Training the Mind (Lojong Tsikgyema). The proceeds of this event will go to support displaced Tibetans who are coming to BC as part of the Tibetan Resettlement Project in Canada. Our one-day event is being organized separately from other events sponsored by the Dalai Lama Centre for Peace & Education in Vancouver.

As soon as our website and posters are ready, we will send to you for distribution. We hope you can join us in supporting His Holiness’ visit by spreading the word through your networks. We are also seeking sponsors to support this event. Please put us in contact with any potential sponsors who may be interested. We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver.

With sincere thanks,

Tenzin Gyurme

President, TCSBC
