Preparations for His Holiness the Dalai Lama at FPMT International Office and Maitripa College. April 24, 2013
Preparation for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s visit to Maitripa College and FPMT International Office are in full swing. With His Holiness arriving in Oregon in two weeks, staff and volunteers are bustling around the Southeast Portland building that is shared by Mandala, International Office, and Maitripa College. This week’s activities span from hanging new prayer flags to finalizing some of the details of three days of events; from talking to reporters to folding 10,000 khatas; and from applying fresh paint to sewing colorful banners for all the windows.
