Will visit Desmond-Fish Library on March 12

Khen Rinpoche, abbot of the Tashi Lhunpo Buddhist monastery in Bylakuppe, India, will speak at the Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 12, on the way books are created, stored and used in Tibetan culture with a focus on the monastic tradition.

Rinpoche, who at age 15 walked with his father more than 800 miles from their home in India to enter the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Tibet, fled to his homeland in 1960. He has been traveling and teaching in the U.S. for more than 30 years; his monastery in exile is currently raising funds to double the size of its library. See
