New Delhi - Coinciding with Tenshug (Long life
prayer)offering to His Holiness the Dalai Lama,
the Global Tibetan Professionals Network
yesterday celebrated the first International GTPN
Day. The day was celebrated simultaneously with
various programs in New Delhi, Bangalore, New
York, San Francisco, Boston, Denver, and Minneapolis and Toronto.

The day is marked to promote the idea and
awareness about the network, say Lhakpa Tsering,
the GTPN Coordinator. These events will feature
Tibetan cultural performances, fashion shows,
painting exhibitions, nail art exhibitions, video
screenings, photo exhibitions and lectures.

GTPN is a platform where Tibetan professionals
from diverse backgrounds are connected into a
network to find creative ways of contributing to
the community. Through this network, Tibetan
professionals around the world share ideas,
information and resources among themselves and
with those aspiring to be professionals through mentorship.

GTPN was first launched in India on Nov 1, 2008
at New Delhi by Empowering the Vision Project in
close cooperation with the Bureau of His Holiness
the Dalai Lama, New Delhi. GTPN in North America was created in Jan 2009.
