The Dalai Lama’s 86th Birthday

Thank you to YOU, our Global Tree Initiative family for contributing to this wonderful video. We sent it to the Dalai Lama as a gift from our One Universal Family.

In return, we received the following message from the Dalai Lama’s secretary:
Thank you for sending your birthday wishes to His Holiness the Dalai Lama which were brought to his notice. I am happy to convey to you His Holiness’ prayers and good wishes.

The Dalai Lama is considered one of the world’s most influential humanitarians. He stands as a symbol for peace, non-violence, and compassionate responsibility for humanity. These are the values that are the inspiration behind the Global Tree Initiative.

Thanks to our One Universal Family, we were able to present to the Dalai Lama 228,676 trees from 45 countries planted since our inception in 2020!

We appreciate all your kind words and wishes. We are grateful for your support. Please, enjoy the video! We hope you feel a deep sense of divine pride for the work we are doing individually together.

If you missed the opportunity to contribute this year, please, keep planting. Remember to report your tree. Include all your fun photos and videos so we are ready for 2022!

Please share this. Thank you!
