This is late notice, as I only heard about it this earlier this morning, but I wanted to make everyone aware who might be interested in making a positive change in their lives. Please visit the Tzu Chi website, and consider eating a vegetarian diet today for the benefit of all beings.

Gelek Rimpoche to speak at Om Café

Gelek Rimpoche
Kyabje Gelek Rimpoche, incarnate lama and founder of Jewel Heart Tibetan Buddhist Center.
Kjabe Gelek Rimpoche, incarnate lama and founder of Jewel Heart Tibetan Buddhist Center, will give a public talk at Om Café July 21 at 4:00 p.m. in Traverse City as part of their one year anniversary festivities. Born in Lhasa, Tibet in 1939, Rimpoche was recognized as an incarnate lama at the age of four. Among the last generation of lamas educated in Drepung Monastery before the Communist Chinese invasion of Tibet, he was forced to flee to India in 1959. He later edited and printed over 170 volumes of rare Tibetan manuscripts that would otherwise have been lost to humanity.

Om Café was voted healthiest restaurant and one of the top three new restaurants in Traverse City by reader choice polls. Om is devoted to healthy, tasty food for everyone and regularly hosts community conscious events and activities.

Rimpoche’s public talk is scheduled for Sunday, June 21, at 4:00 p.m. with a reception to follow. A donation of $10 to $30 is suggested and appreciated.
