A Message from Bob Thurman

Greetings from Tibet House US & Menla, 

We hope you and your families are all well and safe during the present crisis; we send our best wishes and prayers.  We are all together in this, no matter how far we apart we may appear to be.

Like everyone else, we are not sure how long this crisis will last, however we remain committed to our supporters and will stay connected with you through expanded online offerings. We hope you will take advantage of the numerous online teachings and courses that Tibet House US and Menla are providing at this time and will find them directly relevant to dealing with our current challenges. For our part we have had to temporarily close both facilities, partially furlough our staff, implement major spending cutbacks, and postpone our spring programs to later dates.

We look forward to the end of this international disaster and intend to reemerge from it with the same determination — from our members, supporters, staff, board, and Tibetan colleagues — to enact our mission on behalf of the Tibetans and their heritage.  In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy this short video message from our President, Bob Thurman.

As always, thank you for all your assistance, participation, and feedback over all these many years of our shared advocacy for Tibet — your support is vital to our sustainability!


From all of us at Tibet House US & Menla
