Posted In lhakar by GenSherap

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.

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.
