Farewell party for Gen Norbu

12:00 pm Sunday, July 15, 2018

     

 

After nearly 15 years in North Carolina, Gen Norbu is returning to Tibet very soon to take care of his aging mother, whom he hasn't seen for 30-plus years.

Gen Norbu first came to Raleigh from Sera Jey monastery in India with the Shiwa Tour, a group of Sera monks who created sand mandalas and performed traditional Tibetan songs and dances in North Carolina and surrounding states in the early 2000s.  Since then, he has lived and worked in Raleigh, settling near Geshe Gelek and Geshe Sangpo so that he could support them in many quiet and helpful ways.  He frequently joins them at Kadampa Center for pujas on holy days.

Come join in remembering our good times and giving him a good sendoff!
