Showtime, Himalayan Style [Take Me To Your Leader]

Yesterday the New York-based Himalayan community — including many of the Sherpas I have written about in Outside Magazine and The New York Times — hosted His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama for a 2-hour teaching at Radio City Music Hall. For me, as the organizers’ volunteer media liaison, it was a thrilling day that started with greeting the Dalai Lama’s entourage at a secret airport location for a blaze into midtown via high-speed armored motorcade; for the Sherpas and their friends, it was the fulfillment of a long-nourished dream, a visit from their spiritual leader audaciously and ingeniously pulled off from a cab driver’s apartment in Queens. Here, a few outtakes from the day, shot behind the scenes.

    I was at the event with my wife and we were both very impressed with His Holiness’s ability to communicate so clearly the Four Noble Truths. We had just been in Bethlehem PA where he taught Je Tsongkhapa’s Lam Rim Chenmo for 6 days. We are all truly fortunate to have had His Holiness here teaching us about the path to liberation.
    My wife and I would like to stay connected to the Himalayan Buddhist Community. Could you email contact information please?

    thank you for your blog and thank you for your help.
