Happy Birthday Rinpoche!   Although we typically celebrate Rinpoche’s birthday on March 10th, Tibetan Uprising Day, this year Rinpoche would like us to focus our energies on the protest, and celebrate his birthday a little early–Sunday, March 8th, at 12pm following his first teaching on The Instructions of Gampopa:  A Precious Garland of the Supreme Path.  The location is the Manjushri Dharma Center, 724 Forest Avenue in Pacific Grove.

All are welcome to this “lucky-pot” celebration (that is Rinpoche speak for pot-luck).   Please feel free to bring whatever you would like, and we will eat together and celebrate our precious teacher.

Editors note:  Healthy, less sugary and homemade foods are encouraged, and as a bonus challenge, avoid single use plastic packaging, and bring your own cutlery to wash at home.  Sustainable Sangha!
