Taking the opportunity on this occasion, Lha Charitable Trust, Institute for social work and Education, in collaboration with some young Tibetans, spontaneously and voluntarily, plan to publish a book to be brought out as a Felicitation volume in gratitude to Professor Samdhong Rinpoche. We are creating this platform for everyone to send their message or greeting through articles, write-ups, etc. to Rinpoche on his birthday. Therefore, we would like to invite writers and poets around the world to contribute their writings (in Tibetan or English language) in acclamation of Rinpoche's immeasurable services and contributions towards the Tibetan society. There are no word limits or specific topics. The final decision, whether or not to publish your writing, will be made by the editorial board. All the interested writers are requested to mail their writings with their names and brief introduction by email or post on or before 30th September 2014 on the details below. Although, a Notice has been sent earlier, many writers have mentioned that the time frame is too short, to submit their writings. As such, we have extended the latest date for submission of writings, till October 10, 2014. We, therefore, request you to please send your articles/write-ups by this new date.
We also welcome monasteries, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), schools and other institutions, that would like to send letters in gratitude to His Eminence the Professor Samdhong Rinpoche.

Thank you

"Maybe a class organized by the students where they explain Tibetan history and culture, or philosophy or politics to the foreigners. Again this could be covered in conversation but the problem with conversation is everybody is talking about everything at the same time and it's a bit wild, I don't think the foreigners get as much from it than if it were organized that different people speak at different times. And maybe reciprocation from the foreigners point of view, such as their impressions of Tibet, their view on immolations and China's oppression etc. Also maybe culture differences etc".

"I had such a great experience and wish I could come for longer. I was grateful to tutor 2 wonderful women in the mornings during my time there. They were so committed to learn and I could actually see progress just in our week together. I also learned much about the Tibetan experience and it has given me renewed interest in future volunteering".

Lha has the most stable classes of all the educational facilities in Dharamsala. It is only closed for four days during the Tibetan new year, otherwise, we can attend even in the winter time when for some it is school holidays. Without these great people – the staff members, sponsors, volunteers and other any supporters, how would we Lha students gain these opportunities? I am highly appreciative, and, once again, I thank you for all of your work and your devotion to your goals. -Dolker Choedon, 2008

The service provided by the Lha community is very helpful and the staff members working here are so nice and cordial.- Ngawang Dolma.

For me, the way the teachers teach and administrators administrate is going so well. My hearty wish is that the Lha staff members can carry on their good performance continuously for the betterment of society .- Nyitri.

Ahimsa house was great, the hot water, wifi and filtered water was great to have access to. The meal were excellent, I love all the vegetarian options. Breakfast was also excellent and the fruit was always fresh.- Joanna Johnson

The accommodations were great, it was fun to see “American” food incorporated into breakfast and dinner. Volunteering was a great experience, I feel like I learned as much from my partner as she did from me. The sightseeing excursions were very valuable and definitely enhance the experience. - Maggie Hermann

The rooms of Ahimsa were magnificent and well-prepared. Towels, extra sheets, and bathroom were all clean. The library was a great touch. The meals were great.- Joe Signorelli
