Lha hosted two groups under our Cultural Exchange Programme during October་ First was a group of eightpeople from the United States who stayed for a week at Ahimsa House from October 3 – 11. The group was from different walks of life and everyone had a keen interest in Tibetan Buddhism and the unique Tibetan culture. They participated in our English conversation classes to help the students practice spoken English and visited several Tibetan institutes to enhance their knowledge ofthe situation in Tibet. This group was delighted when His Eminence Prof Samdhong Rinpoche spoke to them on Foundation practices for a joyful life and a peaceful death. The group also visited Bir Tibetan settlement and monasteries.
Lha also hosted a group of ten students from Saint Joseph’s Institution International School, Singapore. They helped in our Chinese and English conversation classes for a week.
