    Tashi Delek to Tibetans and friends around the world! Warm Losar
    greetings from Dharamsala, which falls on February 22.As requested,
    please do not celebrate Losar this year, but do observe traditional
    and spiritual rituals by going to the monastery, making offerings,
    and lighting butter lamps for all those Tibetans inside Tibet who
    have sacrificed and suffered under the repressive policies of the
    Chinese government.News from Tibet continues to be grim. Tibet is
    virtually sealed off with foreigners not allowed to enter. Even
    Chinese tourists are prevented from visiting Tibet, and the military
    buildup is very heavy. [The Chinese government has launched a
    massive crackdown on Tibetans who visited India for the Kalachakra
    Teachings. Several hundred Tibetans have been detained and are being
    forced to undergo political re-education. Please see the news
    release from Human Rights Watch] . We are extremely worried over
    what is happening and what might happen inside Tibet. Under such
    circumstances, please do pray for all Tibetans inside Tibet
    especially on the third, eight, tenth and fifteenth day of Losar, as
    these are auspicious days.March 10, our National Uprising Day, is
    coming up soon. There will be many other activities as well where
    Tibetans and our friends will be requested to participate. Please
    remember and observe the guidelines issued by CTA, which is to
    organize and participate in events peacefully, legally and with
    dignity. Peacefully because non-violence is our core principle.
    Legally as we are in a democratic country and have to follow the law
    of the land, and with dignity because we are seeking our freedom and
    dignityTibet Lobby Day is also coming up when Tibetans and friends
    lobby parliaments or the congress and share with members our concern
    over Tibet and the continuing repressive policies of the Chinese
    government. This year is especially important given the unfolding
    tragedy inside Tibet. It is important that we do the best we can to
    approach as many Congressional members and Parliamentarians as
    possible so as to make them aware. If possible, please try to have a
    resolution passed in the parliament or have a good debate on the
    situation inside Tibet. This way the suffering of Tibetans inside
    Tibet and their voices will be heard loud and clear around the
    world, particularly by the leaders in Beijing.I would like to thank
    all those Tibetans and friends who participated in the global vigil
    on February 8. According to various accounts, hundreds of activities
    were organized around the world, thousands participated, and the day
    was very successful.In conclusion, I want to say to our dear
    brothers and sisters inside Tibet that you are in our hearts and
    prayers every day.
