Recently, some 2,000 students at the Tibetan Children’s Village in Dharamsala started observing Lhakar in a more communal and coordinated way. They launched an initiative to wear chupa every fourth Wednesday in a month. This is a landmark event in the development of Lhakar as a powerful movement not only in Tibet but also in diaspora.

Outlook Magazine, one of India’s largest magazines, has published an article on Lhakar. The article, written by B. Raman, draws attention to the Tibetan self-reliance movement that has been gathering momentum over the last couple of years. It invokes Gandhi’s satyagraha in the Indian Independence Struggle almost a century ago, and highlights how Tibetans everywhere are taking pledges to participate in a growing noncooperation movement being wielded against China’s economic and political institutions.

In light of China’s escalating repression in Tibet, Tibetans and supporters in New York started holding a candle light vigil every Wednesday. This vigil has been held at the Chinese Consulate for the last three Wednesdays, but in the coming weeks it might relocate to Union Square in order to achieve greater exposure to the New York public. At last week’s vigil, SFT’s TenDolkar and RTYC’s Tsetan Lhagyal spoke about the upcoming opportunity to protest Chinese leader Xi Jinping during his visit to the United States from February 13 to 16.

The power of Lhakar keeps growing at a staggering pace. In response to the powerful actions and messages emerging from Tibet, exiled Tibetans and supporters have started numerous initiatives to globalize the impact of this Tibetan self-reliance grassroots movement. Some young Tibetans have taken this movement in a literary direction, launching a blog called Lhakar Diaries. Others have started holding Lhakar events every Wednesday that constitute simple gatherings, sharing Tibetan meals, listening to Tibetan music, reading poetry and telling stories, etc.
