BUDDHIST PHILOSOPHY CLASS – I: TCCC Sunday Buddhist Philosophy Class
The Tibetan Canadian Cultural Centre has been organizing Buddhist Philosophy class in Tibetan Language since 2008. Since January 2010 Gomde Lharampa Geshe Thubten Samdup has been most kind and generous to teach the Buddhist philosophy class at Gangjong Choedenling. The class has been held on weekends and the language of instruction is Tibetan.
As per the latest information (circular) received from the Office of Tibet, NY the scheduled Rally for Tibet in Washington DC (October 7, 2013) is postponed until further notice. Please see details in the circular appended below.
We sincerely thank all the members (54) who registered for the round trips to DC attend the Rally.
We also thank all the members who made donations towards the Rally and buses expenses. We will keep the donation received/pledged so far: ($3038) and will use it should the Rally be scheduled again at a later date.
We understand that many of you have taken day off from work to attend the Rally.
Kindly bear with us the inconvenience.
We look forward to the same level of cooperation and support for such important event in the future.
Kindly share this circular with other community members who are not in the email distribution list.
Dear community members and friends,
We are writing to tell you about an exciting opportunity for the Tibetan Canadian Cultural Centre to raise some badly needed funds. TCCC is participating in the Aviva Community Fund competition and we could win as much as $150,000!
As you know, TCCC lacks a functional Audio Visual surround system. Currently, equipment is rented on an event-by-event basis, which is very expensive and cumbersome. We are hoping to raise funds to have an in-house AV system for the many programs (music, dance, language) and events that take place to preserve and promote our rich cultural heritage.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!
How can you help?
Between September 30 to October 14, you can vote for TCCC’s idea once every day.
If we gain enough votes, we will qualify for the semi-finals. Other wise, we are back in the qualifying rounds for a second time. If we reach the finals, we receive $5000 and also be eligible to win the grand prize of $150,000.
