Announcement


His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s representative in Canberra has informed us that the 2018 Australian visit of His Holiness has had to be cancelled.

Tenzin Taklha, Secretary of the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote “We tried our best to have it in the schedule but His Holiness has found it too tiring to have to travel long distances. Australia is just too far away to consider traveling to at this time.” All other scheduled overseas travelling commitments of His Holiness have also been cancelled.

The cancellation is very unfortunate news for the people of Australia. However we can collectively create the causes for His Holiness to have a long and healthy life by transforming our own minds and benefitting others in accordance with His Teachings.

May we always be able to hear directly His Holiness’ heart moving messages of peace, hope, wisdom and compassion for many more years.

We hope and pray that His Holiness will be able to visit Australia again sometime in the future.

You may wish to recite the prayer for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama:

In the land encircled by snow mountains GANG RI RA WÄI KHOR WÄI ZHING KHAM DIR
You are the source of all happiness and good; PHÄN DANG DE WA MA LÜ JUNG WÄI NÄ
All-powerful Chenrezig, Tenzin Gyatso, CHÄN RÄ ZIG WANG TÄN DZIN GYA TSHO YI
Please remain until samsara ends. ZHAB PÄ SI THÄI BAR DU TÄN GYUR CHIG

His Holiness will continue to teach in India. You can find his full teaching schedule here or access teachings and talks via live webcasts or afterwards via video online on His Holiness’s official website www.dalailama.com

Together in the Dharma.
