Big Buddhist to Bayou

Our Bayou St. John neighbors and friends, Louisiana Himalaya Association hosts Chamtrul Rinpoche in New Orleans this September. Here's what they say about the visit:

"We are very excited to announce that Chamtrul (Lobsang Gyatso) Rinpoche has accepted
our invitation and is coming to New Orleans for the month of September. This is his
first visit to the United States, and he will be staying courtesy of LHA right in the
Bayou St. John neighborhood. Chamtrul Rinpoche has been a teacher to and close friend
of ours since we began our work in India years ago.

We have planned a month of teachings, talks and other opportunities to meet with the
Rinpoche, and will be sending out his schedule in the next few weeks. For more information on Chamtrul Rinpoche, visit his website:

If you would like more detailed information or would like to be more closely involved with this project, please contact or,
and we will add you to our specialized email list. We will need lots of help with his
stay and the events, and have many exciting opportunities, other information to present, which we will only be emailing to this list.

Let us know, and hopefully see you in September!

Susan and Shelley

P.S. We are pleased to announce our new blog site where you can find announcements,
updated information about our new building as it comes, and current information about

what is happening with the people of Tibet."
