Today (March 5th) kicks off the year 2138 in the Tibetan lunar calendar - the Year of the Iron Hare.
We wish a happy Losar to you all. May this Year of the Iron Hare bring you, your families, and the entire world an abundance of virtue, wisdom and compassion.
Celebrations will be held in a number of Canadian cities. Please consult the Upcoming Events section on the main page at www.tibet.ca for times and locations.
And at the CTC we're celebrating Losar by renewing our efforts to help protect both the human rights of Tibetans and also Tibet's unique physical environment; and we’ll be establishing welcoming committees across Canada to help integrate the 1,000 new Tibetan-Canadians to be welcomed under the government of Canada’s recently announced resettlement program.
