2 to 4PM
An Intimate Evening with
Tibetan Monk Geshe Thupten Phelgye, PhD, student of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and a former member for ten years in the Tibetan Parliament in Exile
during his current Teaching Tour
Dr. Geshe Thupten Phelgye led his family across the Himalayas to escape the invading Chinese army. Tonight he will talk about his amazing life encompassing his personal story of a journey to freedom, his service to his country in exile, his spiritual path, and share insights into his vision of “Compassion for all Beings.”
At the urging of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Geshe Phelgye successfully ran for the Tibetan Parliament in Exile and served two terms totaling ten years. He meditated in the mountains in India for five years and taught in the U.S. at Gonzaga and Eastern Washington Universities.
Geshe-la speaks English so the presentation will be in English and it will be interactive as he is interviewed by the moderator and answers questions from the audience.
Please feel free to personally greet him before or after the presentation.
This current tour of Geshe-la's is sponsored by Dharma Voices for Animals (dharmavoicesforanimals.org) while all proceeds go to his organization, the Universal Compassion Foundation (universalcompassion.org) to raise support for various humanitarian causes. Suggested Donation of $15-$25 is accepted (no one turned away for the lack of funds).

Housekeeping Notes from Host Location, The GATEWAY:
* Thank you for honoring No Food or Eating or Drinks other than water in containers with lids inside the offices or workshop space of The GATEWAY.
* Cell phones silenced as you enter The GATEWAY Quiet Zones please. Thank you.
* The GATEWAY Portal practices and asks you, its attendees to join us in upholding a no perfume policy as possible. We also practice and ask all to adhere to a no candle and no incense burning policy for those sensitive to synthetic smells as well as for lessening our harmful carbon footprint impact on the environment. Please note that practitioners are permitted to burn a naturally sun dried herb called sage to clean the space energetically. & lastly where candles are part of a sacred ritual, safe, non-scented candles are permitted to be burned upon expressed consent by GATEWAY's operating director. If you have any further questions on this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
* Also, in as much as we LOVE animals outside humans, no animals other than humans are permitted inside The GATEWAY. Blessedly this does not eliminate our Practitioners here at GATEWAY from being able to do work on them, as often they work remotely and/or with photos or props. We thank the universe for Quantum on that. Where necessary, the Practitioner may set up chairs and a portable divider to makeshift a little private area outside near our patio to do hands on work with animals. Thank you so much for your understanding and co-operation.
