Fifty Years in Exile

Check out the Tibet Fund website—Fifty Years in Exile: A Celebration of Tibetan Culture.

Sogyal Rinpoche said:

"Over the past 50 years, the Tibetan people have undergone so much in order to preserve their unique spiritual and cultural heritage, and to share it with the world.

I am delighted that The Tibet Fund has organized this very special series of events in 2009 to celebrate Tibetan identity and culture, and honor the achievements of the Tibetan community in exile.

At this crucial point in the history of Tibet, we all have an urgent responsibility to ensure that its spiritual teachings and rich traditions are not lost.

The 50 Years in Exile project will increase understanding and help to generate support for the Tibetan people’s efforts to safeguard their culture, which is of such far-reaching importance, not only for the Tibetans but for people the world over."
