Through the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery UK Trust's educational and cultural exchanges, including chanting and cham performances, the monks share our unique Tibetan culture and their special monastic tradition with people in Europe and other parts of the world. The Trust also supports the Monastery's work in India. Any assistance extended to the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery will be much appreciated. As Patron of the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery UK Trust and because of my unique relationship with the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery I support the work of the Trust and wish it success in its attempt to help the Monastery here in India.

Statement on the Panchen Lama's Birthday - 25th April 2013
Tashi Lhunpo Monastery's official statement about the Panchen Lama is issued on 25th April on the occasion of His 24th birthday.
On the auspicious occasion of the 24th birthday of His Holiness the Panchen Lama, Jetsun Tenzin Gedhun Yeshey Trinley Phuntsok Pal Sangpo, we, on behalf of all sentient beings, offer our good wishes and prayers for his wellbeing.
It is a matter of sadness that no news of this great spiritual leader has been heard since his disappearance at the age of six in 1995, in spite of numerous requests to the Chinese Government, leading many to question his safety and even whether he is still alive. The situation in Tibet and for Tibetans in exile continues to deteriorate, with more than one hundred young Tibetan men and women deciding to take their own lives by self-immolation in an attempt to raise the issues of religious freedom and the annihilation of Tibetan culture, language and tradition.
Recalling the courage of the 10th Panchen Lama, who openly confronted the Chinese Government on behalf of the Tibetan people, we support the middle way approach for the future of Tibet, proposed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as adopted democratically by Tibetans in exile, and request the immediate release of Gedun Choekyi Nyima, the 11th Panchen Lama and Chadrel Rinpoche (leader of the search committee) and other political prisoners in Tibet.
Finally we pray for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness the Panchen Lama, that they soon be reuinted and that the light of their teachings may be felt all over the world, as the light from the sun and the moon.
