“You say that your mother, who bore you
In her womb in this life, was kind.
‍But why, then, do you not consider even once
The kindness of other beings who helped you,
Your parents from countless lives in the past?”
Shabkar (1781-1851) – Translated by Adam Pearcey (Lotsawa House)

"My native lands is all lands,
In no particular direction.
My monastery is the solitary mountains,
In no particular place.
My family is all the beings of the six realms.”

Due to the rapid development of the COVID-19 pandemic, UCI is taking the necessary steps to contain the spreading of the virus. The Office of the Chancellor announced that instruction for Spring 2020 will be delivered remotely, and all events and visits to the campus are cancelled until the next academic year. Given the uncertainty of campus operations, we are saddened to announce that the UCI-Tibet Initiative, Spring 2020 program will also be cancelled.

We wish you all well and please take care of your health during this difficult time.
