"July 6th Tibetan communities around the world, and their sympathizers,
celebrate the 77th (or 78th since the Tibetans count the time in the womb)
birthday of HH the Dalai Lama. For he's a jolly good fellow. That nobody
can deny! Happy birthday, Your Holiness! Many happy rebirths of the day...
In Kathmandu, the Dalai Lama's birthday is celebrated joyously within the
large Tibetan community here. After all these years, it's hard to believe
that the Chinese are repressing the poor Tibetan people even more and more,
but this is the case. In Kathmandu, because of pressure from the Chinese,
public displays in honor of the Dalai Lama have been suppressed. But there
are pujas for His Holiness in many of the monasteries. In Boddhnath, when
possible, a procession takes place with a large photo of the Dalai Lama.
The participants exuberantly throw tsampa (barley flour) wishing His
Holiness a long life.
We also join in wishing His Holiness a happy birthday. May he long grace
