Thanks to Heaven’s grace and Supreme Master Ching Hai’s profound love, at the end of 2018, tens of thousands of our Association members had the opportunity to gather at the New Land in Taiwan (Formosa) for a meditation retreat and Christmas celebration. One of the highlights of the gathering was the ribbon cutting ceremony on December 25 when our Beloved Master inargurated the new place, which was followed by a blissful entertainment program. Thank You beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, for cutting the ribbon and opening a beautiful start for our New Land. All will be good and all is always good.
Let’s watch the performances presented by our Association members. Upon on the snow-covered plateau, on festive days, the Tibetan people express their joy when reuniting with their Rinpoches, parents, and relatives, through delightful singing and dancing. Blessings and good luck. “Tashi Delek.” Above in the blue sky, Sun, Moon and Star, all three up in the sky; Eightfold Wheel up above in the sky. May the gathering of friends and relatives be auspicious. On the land beneath, Amdo, Khampa and Wichyan are all Tibet’s very own. May the ten-virtues of the land be assembled and bloom. May the meeting with parents be auspicious. Getting together everyday is good fortune and happiness; May no one fall in the next life. Then life would be overwhelming with joy
Mongolian initiates sing with their vigorous, masculine voice to express nostalgia and gratefulness for their homeland. It also awakens our yearning for Heavenly Homeland and gratefulness for Mother Earth. Let’s enjoy the singing and dancing brought to us by Inner Mongolian Association members. May each one find his peace, May peace and happiness prevail under the grace of the eternal blue sky. With the blessing of Supreme Master, may peace prevail on our planet. Hooray, Hooray, Hooray! Singing praise for my homeland, so beautiful; I have come home, so ravishing; Thinking of my mother, who is beaming with light; Returned to my home, that is full of warmth﹍
