Buddhist Pilgrimage to Tibet – OHS105

I am going back Tibet this June to be a part of a Buddhist Pilgrimage. In 2017 I went to Eastern Tibet as part of Buddhist Medical Mission. I assisted a small group of women doctors, eye specialists, physical therapists, and pharmacists as part of their support crew. Mostly I was there to manage people and help keep things organized and the atmosphere well mannered. I carried a lot of bags and played a security role by walking with the women to the outhouse at night. One Path Outreach USA is a grassroots humanitarian relief program that provides healthcare, education, and basic necessities to remote villages in Eastern Tibet. One Path is an extension of the Tibetan Dzogchen Buddhist organization I have been with for the past seventeen years.

This year I want to go back to Tibet as a Buddhist pilgrim. I am motivated to undertake this journey as a practice to deepen my path. A pilgrimage is a very special part of many different types of faiths. There is a great quality connecting with some of the scared places of Tibetan Buddhism. I have an opportunity to go and decided to move forward. I leave for Chengdu, China on June 19th. Then my group is off to Lhasa, Tibet on the 23rd. I will make my way back to the United States on the 5th of July. The days between will be filled with an experience that is almost beyond words.
