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.

Congratulatory Message on the occasion of the 7th Buddhist Summit Dear Venerables, I am very pleased to know from Ven. Chandaratana in France that the 7th Buddhist Summit will be held in November 2017 in Sri Lanka, one of the leading countries of Theravada Buddhism, for the purpose of exchanging views about the development of Buddhism around the world. I also received the information that the World Buddhist Summit Organization in Japan had undertaken the enormous task to build up a Nalanda Buddhist University in Japan. This is a great act of merit and indeed good news not only for Japanese Buddhists, but also for Buddhists throughout the world. On behalf of the Vietnamese Buddhists in Germany, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your great achievements and wish all participants of the 7th Buddhist Summit a successful conference and fruitful discussion. May we, Buddhists from the various traditions, always work together for the benefit of all sentien

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

There had been many changes to Australia since Malcolm Fraser became its 22nd Prime Ministe. During his leadership of 7 years and 4 months (11/11/1975 to 11/03/1983) with the implementation of multi-cultural promotion policies that enhance human rights, compassion and social justice, 56,000 Vietnamese boat people became Australian residents. The number has increased, leading to a community of 300,000 Vietnameses up to now.

Lãnh đạo tinh thần của người Tây Tạng, Đức Đạt Lai Lạt Ma, nói với BBC ông cho rằng có thể mình sẽ là người cuối cùng giữ cương vị này. Tuy nhiên ông nói cũng là điều tốt nếu như truyền thống nhiều thế kỷ nay dừng ở "một vị Đạt Lai Lạt Ma được nhiều người tôn kính". Ông cũng cho rằng Anh quốc đã nhẹ tay với Trung Quốc quanh các vụ biểu tình mới đây vì lý do tài chính. Ông nói: "Túi tiền của họ ít nhiều đang trống rỗng, vậy nên họ quan trọng việc quan hệ chặt với Trung Quốc vì lý do tiền bạc". Đức Đạt Lai Lạt Mamới đây đã bị Đức Giáo hoàng từ chối tiếp khi ông tới tham dự một cuộc họp dành cho những người đoạt giải Nobel Hòa bình tại Rome. Vatican giải thích đây là vì "tình hình tế nhị" với Trung Quốc.

To the south of Los Angeles is a lively independent suburb named Garden Grove. This small city with a population of around 170,000 is home to the Little Saigon of the Los Angeles region, named for the large number of Vietnamese refugees that immigrated there during the 1970s. Garden Grove has long been known as a conservative bastion with a well-run political machine that kept a tight leash on who ran the city. On 4 November by a margin of just 15 votes, Bao Nguyen beat incumbent mayor Bruce Broadwater to become one of a growing number of Buddhists now engaging in public political service in America.

Nguyện đem công đức này, trang nghiêm Phật Tịnh Độ, trên đền bốn ơn nặng, dưới cứu khổ ba đường,
nếu có người thấy nghe, đều phát lòng Bồ Đề, hết một báo thân này, sinh qua cõi Cực Lạc.

May the Merit and virtue,accrued from this work, adorn the Buddhas pureland,
Repay the four great kindnesses above, andrelieve the suffering of those on the three paths below,
may those who see or hear of these efforts generates Bodhi Mind, spend their lives devoted to the Buddha Dharma,
the Land of Ultimate Bliss.
