Lobsang will speak, sing and share words and wisdom about Tibetan Buddhism at Love Temple on Arambol Beach (Goa).

Friday 8 May 2015 - McLeod Ganj, India - The Event

More than 20 people came to the Hour of Peace for Nepal last night, and we raised 3,700 rupees. So the book looks like this: rupees 500 for the venue; rupees 300 for taxi and coolie (for bringing the sound system); rupees 100 for candles. Net in hand 2,800. I will match that amount. So I will be sending rupees 6,000 next week to a journalist friend of mine in Kathmandu, who I trust to make good use of it. Maybe Tsetan could help me get the money to him. Thanks all for the support and love. Photo by Thupten Tenzin.

It is with heavy yet hopeful heart that I will be chanting, praying and singing tomorrow (Friday) for Nepal in my next 'Hour of Peace with Lobsang'. Entry will be by donation, and all proceeds will go for helping Nepal. A journalist friend of mine in Kathmandu wrote to me: "We are completely devastated and destroyed. Many of my kin are lost. Material damaged is unimaginable." So I will send all the proceeds to him. Those who are not in McLeod, but would like to make a contribution could contact me. So, please join me at TCV Day School, Dolma Chowk, McLeod Ganj, from 6:00 to 7:00pm on 8 May (Friday). And please spread the word. Thank you.

About the Hour of Peace with Lobsang

I am fortunate to have attended many teachings and empowerments given by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He begins with simple ideas such as, if you can’t help others, at least don’t harm them. He says it’s not important to be Buddhist, but exhorts people to become good human beings. And to those who are Buddhists, he tells them to become 21st century Buddhists — not by faith, but by knowing.

When he explains complex ideas such as gross and subtle levels of selflessness, then I get totally lost!

From the many teachings that I attended, I was inspired to create this programme, One hour of peace with Lobsang — an hour of chanting, praying, and singing. I am in no way trying to propagate Buddhism, but simply to share what I have learned so far. I feel the teachings are helpful in bringing peace and happiness to all beings.

Buddhism, in essence, is not a religion. I find it to be mind science. So it would be helpful to try to understand what it is all about. You could start with the question: Where is I?
