Tibet Consciousness – Tibetan New Year – Losar Tashi Delek.

Minnesota, USA — The spiritual leader of Tibet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama extended his warmest greetings to Tibetans in Tibet and in exile as well as friends and supporters world-wide for a meaningful Losar (Tibetan New Year) beginning February 8.

Speaking from the hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, United States, on on February 4, 2016, where he is undergoing precautionary prostate treatment, His Holiness offered a brief message on the occasion of the upcoming Tibetan New Year (Losar,

His message focused on expressing his appreciation to those who have sent prayers and well-wishes for his health and recovery, reassuring them: “And I want to tell you that I am doing very well. His Holiness also reassured friends and supporters that he is in good health and is being well looked after by hospital staff.

The treatment only takes a few minutes every day, but it will take time to complete the treatment. It’s nothing complicated, it’s not serious, there’s nothing to worry about.”

He continued that “it’s almost as if I’m taking a rest. I’m doing my daily recitations morning and evening and when there’s time I’m reading other scriptures… I want to tell you not to worry at all.”

He then went on to encourage us not to simply take the Tibetan New Year as an “opportunity to offer ‘che-ma’, drink ‘chang’, and gamble.” The meaning of ‘Tashi’ -as in the Tibetan greeting “tashi delek”- is:
If you create the causes of happiness, if you lead your life in benefiting others and not harming them, that’s a meaningful life, a life that has ‘tashi’. On that basis saying ‘Tashi Delek’ means ‘May you be happy in the here and now and, as we Buddhists say, may you finally achieve definite goodness.’

With that, His Holiness the Dalai Lama wished all a ‘Losar Tashi Delek’ and requested that all “please try to live up to what it means.”
