The Centre Culturel Tibétain wishes you a happy Losar, the Tibetan New Year!
Lama Jigmé sends the following message:
To all my connections, students and anyone who sees this message I wish you a happy new year. I wish you all the best. And this is not just a wish. Tashi is Tibetan. It is an extremely meaningful word. It means for everything to be peaceful; a peaceful world, a peaceful society, a peaceful family, peaceful work and collogues. And wherever you go, to go peaceful and be well with a calm and happy mind and a good mood. This is like root power. For your mind to be more lovely, a more loving and kind attitude, so that everywhere you go you’ll accept and enjoy every moment. It is about being peaceful and aware. This is what it means to have a healthy mind. And this way “happy new year” is connected to a happy and well mind. Your family and friends will be happy and wherever you go and whatever you do, no matter what, your mind is always very well and you will manage any challenge. You will be able to easily deal with anything because your mind is extremely calm, powerful and peaceful. Love and compassion, to understand impermanence, all of this is power. You see, “Don’t worry be happy, tomorrow another day.” There are many ways to get a peaceful mind. And with that peaceful mind connect to society, you see, “happy new year” is about this. I wish this all to you. I hope you understand this all. I hope you can integrate your mind training this way. I wish that this Tibetan new year you will contemplate on this in your daily life and share this to benefit others wherever you go.
Lama Jigmé Namgyal
