After a 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck northeast India and Nepal last week, some people have been concerned that the area near Dharamsala where our “Tibetan Path in India” tour will be going October 21 through November 7 may have been affected. Happily, it was not. Although there was damage in Kathmandu and in India’s Sikkim state, the tremors did not affect the areas in Macleod Ganj or Delhi where our tour is happening.
When tour host Lisa Tully heard about the recent and incredibly unfortunate earthquakes, she phoned her contacts in Dharamsala as well as the embassy in India. She was relieved to discover that the area where her tour is run was not impacted. Life continjes to bustle on as normal both in Delhi and Dharamsala,” she said. Lisa also added her request to “…please send some love and support in whatever way you do to the poor people in the far Northern parts who have been impacted.”

Our latest tour offering includes a trip to Dharamsala India to attend teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This is something that is quite difficult for most westerners to arrange, but the host of this tour, Lisa Tully, has inside help. Her friend, Buga, is a Tibetan Buddhist monk who lives in McLeod Ganj, where HHDL also resides.
Lama Buga Tire also spent two years at the Buddhist meditation center that is the location for the second part of this unique tour, a 10-day silent retreat at the Tushita Meditation Centre in McLeod Ganj.
Lisa is originally from Ireland, but she currently lives in London, England. A yoga and meditation enthusiast, Lisa describes the motivation for her programs as “helping her Western brothers and sisters become free from spiritual poverty” by immersing them in the Tibetan Buddhist lifestyle”
The dates for this program are October 27 through November 7, 2011. To see the full itinerary please visit: Dalai Lama India Meditation Tour on the Body Mind Spirit Journeys main website.read more
