Welcome To Sierra Friends of Tibet
October 12, 2015
Sunday, October 18th at 7:00 PM Sierra Friends of Tibet will present The American Rinpoche at the Nevada County Library Community Room, 980 Helling Way, just outside Nevada City. The American Rimpoche is the documentary film about the life of Gelek Rimpoche, a former Tibetan monk now citizen of the United States. Framed by archival photos of old Tibet taken by Rimpocheís father in the 1930s and í40s, the film traverses the link between one manís job as a modern spiritual teacher and the impact of Tibetís myths and practices on Americans seeking direction in an increasingly complex world. Born in Lhasa in 1939 he has lived an extraordinary life spanning continents, customs, and cultures. The film was directed by Nikki Appino with music by Philip Glass. The film is presented for free; any and all donations will go to Sierra Friends of Tibet for expenses in facilitating the visit of Tibetan Buddhist Monks in January.
Earlier the same day, Sunday, October 18th Sierra Friends of Tibet will meet at the BriarPatch Community Room at 1:00 PM. We will be doing our annual mailing during the meeting and begin discussing the Monks visit and schedule. Our meetings are open to all and all are welcome.
We hope to see you at our meeting or Sunday night at the Library.
Thank you for all your support for the people of Tibet and your local support group.
