FPMT News Around the World
Today is His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s 77th birthday and the world is celebrating!
In recognition of the day, FPMT North America (FPMT NA), the regional group representing centers, projects, services and students from Canada and the United States, has launched Compassion Day, making special effort on July 6 to remember not only His Holiness’ presence and contribution to the world, but also “to come together and celebrate compassion.”
Compassion Day encourages people everywhere to participate in a variety of ways: rejoicing in His Holiness’ positive influence in our lives and sharing that with him; meditating on compassion and loving-kindness using instructions developed by Ven. Sangye Khadro; and engaging in compassionate actions for self and others.
Submissions of pictures, writing and videos from Compassion Day’s festivities can be posted on its Facebook page. You can post any time day or night to make a contribution.
With 158 centers, projects and services around the globe, there is always news on FPMT activities, teachers and events. Mandala hopes to share as many of these timely stories as possible. If you have news you would like to share, please let us know.
