Today is Day 29 of fast.

We are calling all within the NY/NJ Dharma community to put their practice and right effort in full effect!

Join us for the NY/NJ SANGHA STAND & SIT IN SOLIDARITY WITH TIBET Mindfulness March this Wednesday March 21st, 2012.

We will begin at the Chinese Consulate on W 42nd st and 12th ave at 4:30PM

at 5:00 PM we will then walk down down 42nd st to 2nd Avenue until we reach the United Nations on 43rd st where 3 of our Tibetan brothers have been on a hunger strike for he last month, hoping to appeal to the United Nations regarding the mounting crisis in Tibet.

From there we will walk down 2nd ave until we reach 8th st and enter WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK on the 5th avenue entrance.

Please, come and formally recognize the suffering that Tibet and our NY Tibetan community is experiencing. We beg of you to forget any political stances you may have and recognize the impact the Tibetan culture has had on us as a Dharma community. This also goes beyond the Dharma, this is a human rights issue. Tibet is burning, our Sangha is burning. Display that you understand suffering is apparent and something needs to be done.
