Advice for Daily Life
Friday, Oct. 19, 10:00AM 
Under the guidance of our precious teacher Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche and after two years of planning and working in collaboration with the wonderful people at WCSU, we are all very excited to be welcoming His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama to Danbury this month. His Holiness’ visit is an extremely fortunate opportunity for all of us and we believe that this event is a milestone for achieving our mission to bring peace, compassion and understanding to our extended community.
We pray for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and for all the spiritual leaders who work to bring happiness and peace to sentient beings. We pray for their wishes to be spontaneously achieved and for the success of this auspicious event.
