Celebration of the 82nd Birthday of the Dalai Lama-NYC-USA

Monday, July 31st, 2017

On July 6th, 2017, a Birthday Celebration was held in NYC in honor His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

The theme was “World Peace through Compassion.”

The event was organized by the The Tibet Fund in New York City.

“Never Give Up”

No matter what is going on
never give up
develop the Heart
too much energy in your country
is spent  developing the mind
instead of the Heart
Be Compassionate
not just to your friends
but to Everyone
Be Compassionate
Work for Peace
in your Heart and in the World
Work for Peace
and I say again
never give up
no matter what is going on around you
never give up
BY His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama”

Staff of The World Peace Prayer Society as invited guests were asked to close the evening’s Program by presenting the World Peace Flag Ceremony.

At the podium, Ann Marie Robustelli & Jim Dugan, WPPS Staff

Together with united hearts and minds, participants were invited to invoke prayers for peace for people in all countries throughout the world.
