"Today, the people and deities of Tibet have made prayers for my long life.
Doctors also suggest I could live another 20 years or so.
I’m 80 now; let’s plan to celebrate again when I’m 90." - His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Will you please take a moment to share warm birthday greetings to His
Holiness the Dalai Lama? Monday will be the 80th anniversary of his
birth, so I encourage you to act without delay.
As a friend of the Tibetan people and supporter of the International
Campaign for Tibet, you know the Dalai Lama’s wisdom, compassion and
devotion to peace are worthy of our admiration and emulation every day.
But his 80th birthday is a particularly auspicious occasion for you to
express your respect.
