The Tibetan Community of Australian (NSW) Inc.cordially invites you to join us in celebrating HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA’S 79TH BIRTHDAY.Additionally, we dedicate this year to honour His holiness 14th Dalai Lama for his tremendous inspiration to millions of people of all nations and denominations across the globe. He is one of the world’s greatest advocacies of peace and a living example to us all. Please join us on to make this day joyous celebration and an extravagant event.
Following long and careful investigations, His Holiness the Dalai Lama strongly discourages Tibetan Buddhists from propitiating the fierce spirit known as Dolgyal (Shugden). Although he once practised Dolgyal propitiation himself, His Holiness renounced the practice in 1975 after discovering the profound historical, social and religious problems associated with it. He did so with the full knowledge and support of his junior tutor, the late Kyabje Trichang Rinpoche through whom His Holiness first became associated with the practice.
Thank you to all our supporters from across the country and the entire Tibet Advocacy Day team. 12 Tibetans met with 42 MPs and Senators from all parties on 17 March. They shared their perspectives on the situation in Tibet through their own and their families’ experiences and called for stronger political support from the Australian Parlaiment and Government. Together they gathered 36 signatures to a Statement of Support for Tibet. On 18 March, Australia Tibet Council delivered the statement to the Foreign Minister.
