Dr Lobsang Sangay is the democratically re-elected leader of the Tibetan people and political successor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Dr Sangay was born in exile in a Tibetan settlement near Darjeeling, India where he attended the local School for Tibetans. He was an excellent student and went on to complete his Bachelor of Arts with Honours and Bachelor of Law from Delhi University, India. 
​ 
In 1996, as a Fulbright Scholar, he obtained a Master’s degree and in 2004, Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) from Harvard Law School. Dr Sangay is the first Tibetan ever to receive this degree. His dissertation, Democracy in Distress: Is Exile Polity a Remedy? A Case Study of Tibet’s Government-in-exile was awarded the Yong K. Kim 95 Prize.

Dr. Sangay is an expert on International Human Rights Law, Democratic Constitutionalism, and Conflict Resolution. He has spoken in many seminars around the world. He organised seven major conferences among Chinese, Tibetan, Indian and Western scholars including two unprecedented meetings between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Chinese scholars at Harvard University.

In 2007, he was selected as one of the twenty-four Young Leaders of Asia by the Asia Society and a delegate to the World Justice Forum in Vienna, Austria, where top legal experts and judges from around the world congregated. 
​ 
In 2011, during Dr. Sangay’s swearing-in ceremony, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said, “When I was young, an elderly regent Takdrag Rinpoche handed over Sikyong responsibilities to me, and today I am handing over the responsibilities to young Sikyong Lobsang Sangay. In doing this I have fulfilled my long–cherished goal.”

Dr Sangay will give a talk on Tibet in the 21st Century: Political, Environmental, Cultural and Economic Challenges at this fundraising dinner. 

The evening will include delicious Tibetan food, prepared by Topchen and his family of Wild Yak Restaurant plus a variety of Traditional Tibetan musicians and dancers including Melbourne’s Tenzing Yeshe and Brisbane's Tenzin Choegyal along with Traditional dancers from Tibetan Community in Melbourne.

As a fund raiser for the Tibet Cultural Centre (TIO), Canberra, we hope you will be inspired to join us, gather a group of friends and colleagues for an evening of inspiration, fun and cultural activities by Tibetan Community.

This evening is hosted by Mr Lhakpa Tshoko, Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Australia and supported by Wild Yak Restaurant, Victorian Tibetan Community and Tibetan artists Tenzin Choegyal and Tenzing Yeshe.

Ideally, education is the principal tool of human growth, essential for transforming the unlettered child into a mature and responsible adult. Yet everywhere today, both in the developed world and the developing world, we can see that formal education is in serious trouble. Classroom instruction has become so routinized and pat that children often consider school an exercise in patience rather than an adventure in learning.

This book studies the role of exports in Vietnam’s rapid growth since the country implemented a comprehensive reform (Doimoi) in 1986 to transform itself from a centrally command system to a ‘socialist-oriented market economy’. One central finding is that Vietnam’s growth since Doi-Moi has indeed been export-led as the second-tier NICs of Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, but that many of the characteristics of Vietnam’s exports are different to those of these NICs. Another key finding is that Vietnam’s growth since 2000 has been extensive rather than intensive with high GDP growth driven by rapid growth in factor supplies, especially labour, with low growth in non-agricultural productivity. Such a development path will not support the rate of long-term growth that Vietnam requires to achieve its development objectives, and major policy changes are necessary. This book provides useful insights in Vietnam’s economy and is a good reference for economic researchers, postgraduate

Dan Stevenson is neither a Buddhist nor a follower of any organized religion. The 11th Avenue resident in Oakland's Eastlake neighborhood was simply feeling hopeful in 2009 when he went to an Ace hardware store, purchased a 2-foot-high stone Buddha and installed it on a median strip in a residential area at 11th Avenue and 19th Street. He hoped that just maybe his small gesture would bring tranquillity to a neighborhood marred by crime: dumping, graffiti, drug dealing, prostitution, robberies, aggravated assault and burglaries.

The challenge that Buddhism faces today is not with the dharma itself, the Buddha's teaching - as the timeless message embedded in the Four Noble Truths maintains its validity - but how to present this ancient teaching as a meaningful alternative to the young who have been shaped by the values of the consumer society. There is a new era of technological innovation sweeping the world, which has spawned a new medium - the Internet's world wide web, a very powerful communications network and learning environment. The Internet should not be seen as just a new way to disseminating or repackage the Buddha's teachings but potentially as a base for an innovative online dharma community - a Cyber Sangha, that offers alternative social and spiritual values.

In India in the 6th century BC, Sakyamuni, "a wise man of the Sakya tribe", had been meditating under a tree when, suddenly, he was struck with the comprehension of all things. He became Buddha, meaning the « Illuminated ». His message, based on a pragmatic philosophy, taught how to free oneself from all needs in order to achieve illumination. After the death of the Enlightened One, his disciples – a few monks – began to spread his teachings all over India, from Ceylon to the Himalayan. Fearing man’s penc

Addressing the problem of corruption that plagues India and China, the Dalai Lama said that the absence of moral values was the reason behind the rampant rise in corruption.
