Tonight at the Library, listen to Jim Peterson talk about, and show images from, his journey to India last year. Jim took part in the march for Tibetan human rights. He is passionate and dynamic on this important topic. I remember him sharing this incredible story during an interesting and animated conversation over breakfast at Pinky’s Cafe when he came back from that first trip to India, and I look forward to hearing more, and seeing the photos tonight. Jim is headed back to India in a couple of days.
From the flyer for the event:
How one Montana man went to India and ended up marching 750 miles with Tibetan nuns and monks.
Jim Petersen left Livingston last January to go to India for the first time. He wanted to learn some cultural aspects of the Tibetan people in exile. He took cooking lessons, tutored some young Tibetans in English and attended the spring teachings from the Dalai Lama. He learned of the Tibetan Peoples Uprising Movement and the planned march from Dharamsala to Delhi and on to the border of Tibet. He invites you to come to the audio visual presentation documenting the events of this noble march for Tibetan human rights.
Tonight, February 9 at 7:00 PM in The Bev Steveson Community Room at the Livingston Public Library.
