A Personal Request from Kalon Tripa

August 15, 2008

Dear Friends,

You might have seen the Appeal issued by the Tibetan Solidarity
Committee to request all Tibetans, Tibet Support Groups and
peace-loving people of the world to observe a 12-hour symbolic
fasting and prayer on 30th August 2008 for world peace and,
particularly, for the departed souls of the Tibetan people in recent
months in Tibet. The appeal also re-commits ourselves to the path of
non-violence. The objectives and how to observe the fasting are
mentioned in detail in the appeal. If you have not received the
appeal as yet, please visit our official website and

We consider this as extremely important non-violent action taken by
Tibetans under the leadership of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in a
very critical period for Tibet, particularly the post-Olympic period.
I personally request you and your organization to kindly participate
in this fast and prayer and encourage many other people to join us in
this effort to reduce our own defilements and to create wisdom and
compassion in the minds of the oppressor. I believe you will
cooperate us in this non-violent action.

With my warm personal greetings,

Your sincerely,

Samdhong Rinpoche
