Solidarity with Tibetans on their Losar (New Year)

On Monday, February 11, 2013, in Culture & History, by Melissa Jimison

LosarLosar Tashi Delek! Today marks the first day of the Tibetan New Year, Losar. At this time of increased tumult inside Tibet, I am especially thinking about our brave Tibetan brothers and sisters inside Tibet and the challenges they face. I’m thinking about families who are unable to celebrate this Losar together. I want them to feel the embrace of compassionate people outside of Tibet who care about them and stand with them.

At the end of last year ICT collected messages of solidarity from Tibet supporters worldwide as part of a “Season of Solidarity.” As we send Losar greetings to our Tibetan friends around the world, I wanted to share some of the messages of support. I hope they lift your heart as they do mine.

Thousands of people from around the world signed our “Season of Solidarity” message, but others wrote more personalized notes. Some of those follow.

May the year of the Water Snake 2140 bring peace to Tibet and the Tibetan people.
 


 
Dear people of Tibet,
I think of you every day and what you are going through. I fly the Tibetan flag over my front door because you cannot. Know that we care and are trying and we will never stop telling your story and asking the world to relieve your suffering. Know that it will happen.

Most sincerely,
Gail H, USA
 


 
Tibetan People
Tashi delek! Everyday I meditate on compassion and love for all sentient beings, the people of Tibet always weight heavy in my heart though and the struggle that you ensue each day. Please know that you are in my thoughts and that I am behind you in every step you take towards peace in Tibet.

Please know that you are not alone on your path to justice and peace for all the people of Tibet.

You have my support, my admiration, and my solemn promise that I will not allow the plight of your people to be hidden from the world’s conscience.

I am with you. The world is with you. Take heart.

Most sincerely,
Brittany H.
 


 
The truth of the Tibetan situation will eventually change the minds and hearts of those who oppress you and your culture. Freedom will return to Tibet.

We pray that the Chinese people will soon force their government to adopt a more humane and loving attitude toward their Tibetan brothers and sisters on this Earth. Remember, Truth and Goodness always prevail in the end, so you will ultimately be victorious in spite of unimaginably horrible losses on the way to your destination.

Most sincerely,
Devki J
 


 
Dear Brothers and Sisters of Tibet,
Please know that you are not alone on your path to justice and peace for all the people of Tibet.

It is always darkest before the Dawn.

Most sincerely,
Steve S.
 


 
I’m deeply ashamed that the powerful of the earth are silent on Tibet’s suffering. But many ordinary people suffer with you, and are outraged at the situation in Tibet.

You have the support and best wishes of my entire family. We will speak out for Tibet at every opportunity. We hope to one day visit a free Tibet and see His Holiness the Dalai Lama once again in Lhasa.

We are with you in heart and spirit. Stay strong. Your compassion is a beacon for a troubled world.

All the best,
Mary C.
 


 
Things always look darkest before the dawn, so keep your chin up. Know that it is your spirit that counts and no force, nor money will ever destroy it unless you let it.

Most sincerely,
Mario G. C.
 


 
I feel so grateful and indebted to the Tibetan people who practiced and served Buddhism so faithfully for a thousand years. Your teachings of kindness, compassion, love, and non-violence are what the world needs most right now. I stand with you, and you have my solemn promise that I will not allow the plight of your people to be hidden from the world’s conscience.

With gratitude and in solidarity,
Flint C.
 


 
I keep all of you in my thoughts every day, and deep in my heart I’m grateful for all that you are, and all that you gave us through your culture.

I’m praying for you, from Brazil, to be strong and to be free!

I am with you. The world is with you. Take heart.

Most sincerely,
with best wishes and prayers,
Martha, Brazil
 


 
Please know the world’s citizens are aware of your strength and determination. We stand in solidarity with all the people of Tibet as we do with the beloved Dalai Lama, who in his benevolence, has awakened us all to your plight. Prayers go daily to you in love, in petition for protection and for peaceful resolve.

You have my support and my solemn promise that I will not allow the plight of your people to be hidden from the world’s conscience.

I am with you. The world is with you. Together we are One.
Namaste.
Deborah
