A Year of Gifting Week 12


Tibet House in Honor of Nawang Khechog

I had the opportunity to meet the most amazing, talented and gracious man as we were creating our first event with Imagine Peace Foundation.  I had the privilege of hearing his healing music in my spiritual home at Mile Hi Church.  I crossed paths with him in the quiet sanctuary hall after one of his visits to perform his Tibetan flute music and told him of my vision to start a foundation dedicated to peace, we spoke for some time, he encouraged me and I asked if he would consider performing at an upcoming event.  He gave me his number and said to call him.  From there we formed a special friendship and he supported our foundation on many occasions.  Being in his presence was always inspiring; he exudes kindness and compassion and represents everything that is peace.

About a month ago I was in the bookstore and saw his warm face on the cover of a book and saw that he had published his incredible story, "Awakening Kindness".  I took it with me on a recent trip and savored it.  It tells of his years growing up in the Buddhist philosophy and meditation with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.  He offers practical tools for deepening our lives through meditation and other practices.  His book is about finding joy through compassion for others.

I just discovered this past week that he was in Maui getting ready for a 5 concert tour called, Awakening Kindness, when he was rushed to the hospital to undergo emergency brain surgery that appears to have been caused by a tragic auto accident several years ago.  This week as he's recovering I would like to dedicate a very special "A Year of Gifting" to, Nawang Khechog and his tireless work for Tibet and the principles that he so courageously stands for.  He is a radiating light and I would like to send that light back to him.  Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers and join me this week in donating a minimum of $3-$10.00 to an organization close to his heart; Tibet House.

Tibet House US was founded at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who at the inauguration in 1987 stated his wish for a long-term cultural institution to ensure the survival of Tibetan civilization and culture, whatever the political destiny of the six million people of Tibet itself.

"I feel that Tibetan culture with its unique heritage -born of the efforts of many human beings of good spirit, of its contacts with Mongolian, Chinese, Indian, Nepalese and Persian culture, and of its natural environment - has developed a kind of energy which is very helpful for cultivating peace of mind and a joyful life.

I feel that there is a potential for Tibet to help humanity, and particularly our Eastern neighbor, where millions of young Chinese have lost their spiritual values. In this way, I feel very strongly that Tibetan culture will have a role to play in the future of humanity.".

  - His Holiness the Dalai Lama

A quote from Awakening Kindness-

This is my simple religion.   There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

-His Holiness the Dalai Lama
