His Holiness The Dalai Lama Birthday Celebration

June 30, 2008

Namgyal Monastery (Ithaca, New York)
June 28 2008

Dear Friends,

The anniversary of the birth of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama will be celebrated this upcoming Sunday, July 6th, 2008.  The resident Namgyal monks will lead a special prayer ceremony for the long life of His Holiness from 9:00 ­ 10:00 AM at Namgyal Monastery, 412 North Aurora Street, Ithaca, NY.  Sweet tea and rice will be hosted by the Tibetan Association of Ithaca, who will be joining in the celebration.

Also on July 6th from 10:15-11:15 AM on the grounds of our new Monastery, Du Khor Choe Ling on Route 96B in Ithaca, the Tibetan Association of Ithaca along with the Namgyal Venerable Monks will be hanging prayer flags, performing an incense burning ceremony, for the long life of His Holiness.  As Du Khor Choe Ling is a construction site, students are advised to wear appropriate footwear for walking on uneven ground.

All in the community are invited and welcome to attend both of the above events.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the celebrations,
Namgyal Monastery
