Hey guys! I'm going to Ladakh (aka "Little Tibet", the nothernmost state in India) this summer and I'm SO excited! I've never been there before, it will be my first time at such high altitude. I'm going to stay with the family of our resident lama and visit the capital city, witness the village life in the mountains and see the monasteries. If anyone has experienced this, I would love to hear about it (you can comment here or message me)!
Anyways, here are the icons.. enjoy!

Banning of herbs

  In 1 day, a new EU directive will ban much of herbal medicine, denying us safe remedies and feeding the profits of big pharma. Let's raise a massive outcry to push the Commission to fix the Directive, and our national governments to refuse to implement it. Let's get to 1 million voices to save herbal medicine. Add your name here:

He was an excellent teacher in all ways, and I was fortunate enough to be among his students. May all beings benefit through his activities now and in the future--

NGO in China

Tashi delek All!

I am searching for a full time work in NGO in China, preferably in organization which works with Tibetan communities.
I found two good and promising organizations: http://www.asia-ngo.org/ and http://trace.org/ 
Has anybody here worked for them?

Does anybody know any other NGOs in China, where I can try to apply for a full time work.

I am Russian, Buddhist, living in China mainland. I speak fluent Chinese and beginner level of Tibetan.
At the present time I am working for the international business consulting company in Beijing, but find this work quite meaningless. It's like i am working there with no any interest and only for supplying myself with food and accomodation.
I want to work for charity, get closer to people who need help. Due to I dont have spare money to start helping others or to apply for any short-term volonteer projects (all projects I found in China are leading by one own expenses), I am ready to offer all my time, energy and knowledge for working at any position in a charity organization.

Please, help me to get involved to charity.

Best wishes, Anna

Monasteries hit hard by quake in W'n China

*X-posted*
Early report: "25 dead, 5 missing, many injured at Thrangu Monastery. Main new temple, one shedra building, and part of library completely destroyed." (Early estimates: 1,200 dead with 10 times as many injured.)

"Thrangu Monastery has been completely destroyed." is the word from the Thrangu Emergency website"

"The town of Yushu, as I remember it, is gone. 90% of the buildings are down, many people are trapped. There are no stores open, no water, no food. The dam has a crack and is being drained."

* "Eye-witness Report from Earthquake" from Shambhala Times
"Khenpo Tsering of the Surmang Monastery was able to call Lyndon Comstock of the Konchok Foundation to report on the devastation in the Surmang area. The full report of their call is below.

Khenpo said that Jyekundo (the closest city to Surmang) is completely destroyed. He said that probably 95% of the buildings in the city have been destroyed. He said that, if anyone has seen the movie 2012, it looks like that. Even some of the more recent larger buildings collapsed. He said that a six or seven story building collapsed like the World Trade Center.

Khenpo said that about eight hundred bodies that have been pulled out of the rubble so far but there are thousands more bodies still buried in the collapsed buildings."

Question

  I don't know where else to ask this question, but here I am.
I have been having frequent dreams of a Yellow Tara.

Normally I would think nothing of a dream, but it has been a nightly occurrence.

Any thoughts?

study on Tibetan Buddhism and mental health

02:31pm 20/03/2010
  Hello. My name is Paul Sireci, and I am a second-year masters student at the Smith College School for Social Work. I am currently collecting data for my thesis in order to examine the relationship that Tibetan Buddhists have with professional mental health care. Specifically, I am trying to gather data on what concerns Tibetan Buddhists believe are best addressed by professional mental healthcare, by their Buddhist teacher/spiritual community/or practice, by both, or by neither. I am currently recruiting participants for the study, which is a web-based survey that takes approximately 20-45 minutes to complete depending on your response time.

HAVE YOU CHOSEN TO TAKE REFUGE, OR DO YOU PLAN TO? Yes
DO YOU LIKE CHEESE?  Very much so.  Not the sharp cheeses though.

I've been practicing for a few years now and came to the community to get some insight onto my path.  I was given the Ngöndro practice by a teacher and, in the spirit of attempting to learn more about the Path before getting in way over my head, here I am.  So, questions will be forthcoming once I figure out a proper, tactful, and polite way to ask them.

Help in time of disaster 
  mamadar
 
09:55am 01/03/2010
  News of natural disasters in Europe this morning, on top of the Haiti and Chile earthquakes, have got me wondering whether there are any bodhisattvas or dharma protectors traditionally invoked for help with natural disasters. I myself have been doing Medicine Buddha kind of obsessively for my own health, those close to me, and pretty much anybody in trouble, but I would like to know if there is anyone more specific.

  Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama walks out the doors of the Palm Room of the White House by trash bags waiting to be picked up due to delays from the snow storms of last week in Washington, DC after meeting with US President Barack Obama. The Dalai Lama appeared in public at the White House Thursday and said US President Barack Obama was 'supportive' in a meeting that drew angry protests from China.
