Happy B'Day, the Dalai Lama!


July 6 is the Dalai Lama's Birthday and he is 74 years old today. He has been away from his own home, Tibet, for the last 50 years. I pray for him and his people's freedom and human rights in Tibet. The party was held at the Tibet House Museum in Chelsea. The photo above is his portrait taken by Richard Avedon, one of the legendary fashion photographers in our history. The Buddha statue is a collection of the Tibet House. I love this Buddha's charming expression!
