On our network you will find all about Tibet and HH the 14th Dalai Lama, community blog posts, videos, photos, and most important of all, friends who also want a FREE TIBET and a free world.
By uniting our lights for freedom in Tibet, we have started something huge. Our candles symbolize our non-violent pledges to work together until there is freedom for the people of Tibet.
Candle4Tibet was the the force behind a massive peaceful protest effort to bring freedom to Tibet. The network called on people around the world to light a candle on August 7 2008, formally expressing support for the Tibetan people.
Our universal agreement is now that Candle4Tibet will keep the flame alive until the main goal — a FREE TIBET and a free world — has been achieved.
To sustain this community of friends and keep it lively, strong, and close, the network holds a monthly « Candle For Tibet » ritual during which participants are asked to light a candle for Tibet and pray for the liberation of its people. To foster participation, the event will effectively take place over a 72-hour period starting from 6PM on the 7th day of each month until 6PM on the 10th.
These dates are not random. The 7th reminds us of the great concentration of candles which began on August 7, 2008, and the 10th corresponds to the anniversary of the Lhasa Uprising, which took place on March 10, 1959.
May our collective efforts bring freedom to the people of Tibet ! Tibetans will be Free ! Svaha !
