H.H. the Dalai Lama's Birthday Celebration

Sunday, July 11
Time: 10:00 am
Location: Shrine Room
Free, Open to the Public

H.H. J.D. Sakya and members of Sakya Monastery and the Tibetan Association of Washington cordially invite you to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama's birthday celebration. A traditional service will be held which includes mandala offerings and long life prayers.

This is the celebration of the birth of the spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet who is recognized as an emanation of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, known in Tibetan as Chenrezi. Through the concerted efforts of the Tibetan community and its friends, H.H. Dalai Lama's birthday is now also known as World Tibet Day.

We'll enjoy tea, long life rice and birthday cake at the end of the ceremony.
