Merit Makers & Side Notes
Thanks go out this week to all the dakinis and dakas that offered support and/or served during this year's very special Losar celebration. It took a many people to make this Tibetan New Year come alive. A vibrant team worked hard to plan, prepare food and drink, set up, serve, dance and even offer the greatly missed Snow Lion dance. Thank you to every one at the Center and the Tibetan community for Losar 2020 offerings!
