The Tibetan Association of Colorado and the Tibet Museum of the Department of Information and International Relations, Central Tibetan Administration, cordially invite you to attend our exhibition and fundraiser for our “Dream Project” at Naropa University on October 24th and 25th, 2015.
The event includes an exhibition on His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Biography and Contemporary History of Tibet and song and dance performances by Tibetan Cultural School. We will serve delicious Tibetan snacks as you enjoy the programs.
THE DREAM PROJECT
Our Dream Project is to build a Tibetan Center for Secular Ethics in Colorado. This center will serve as a resource for all Coloradans to promote inter-religious harmony, interracial tolerance and peace and compassion to all human beings. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has travelled around the world to promote these basic human values and the Tibetan Association of Colorado would like to further promote these values for the humanity through our Dream Project.
This center will also serve as a multi-purpose place for the Tibetan Community to preserve and nurture its culture and language through education, seminars, workshops, etc.
You can get more information on our Dream Project by visiting our website at www.coloradotibetans.org.
The first exhibition titled “Biography of His Holiness the Dalai Lama” features photographic narrative on His Holiness’ early life and responsibilities, his meetings with world leaders and awards he has received. It also features His Holiness’ three main commitments in life – Promotion of Human Values, Promotion of Inter Religious Harmony and Preservation of Tibet’s Buddhist Culture.
