Dear Friends,
 
We are sure you will be delighted to learn that Ven. Geshe Lhakdor-la, the Director of the LTWA (Library of Tibetan Works and Archives) is cuming to Mumbai in these Month. (December).
 
We have organised two evenings with him, a teaching on the first evening, and a public talk on the second, the details of which are given below. 
 
There is no pre-registration or fees for these sessions, but we would be grateful if you could let us know whether you are coming. Also, we would request you to make a voluntary donation towards the expenses. The suggested donation is Rs 200/- per head (just once for both days). However this is purely on a voluntary basis, and no one should feel hesitant about coming due to financial constraints. You are most welcome to attend even if you do not wish or cannot make a donation. Donations will be collected at the venue itself.

Geshe Lhakdor-la is presently the Director of the LTWA (Library of Tibetan Works and Archives). Prior to this appointment, he was for fourteen years the main translator and interpreter for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In that capacity he was privileged to travel with His Holiness to almost every important country around the globe and observe and participate in His Holiness' interactions with world leaders and celebrities. He has come on various occasions to Bombay at the invitation of Dharma Rain and has given many teachings, talks and retreats to our sangha.
 
In spite of his very busy schedule, we are indeed very fortunate and privileged to have him here for two days again, and we hope many of you would be able to take this opportunity to meet him and interact with him.
 
Thanks
