Our Tibetan voices project continues this summer with planned interviews with two Tibetans, including Thupten Jinpa Langri, the principle English translator and interpreter for His Holiness the Dalai Lama for the past 29 years. Jinpa-la recently appeared in Tricycle Magazine, discussing the relationship of Tibetan Buddhism with the West.
A religious scholar with qualifications from both the East and West, Jinpa-la has a lot of knowledge to impart, which is why 3 Generations will be interviewing him about his vison for a world without atrocity. Inspired by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, we are recording the voices of visionaries like Jinpa-la because if we cannot imagine a better world, we cannot create one.
Thanks for your support as we continue to ampify the voices of Tibetans and work toward a world without atrocity.

Before escaping in 1959, Rinchen Dharlo lived in a small town in southwestern Tibet with his family. When the Tibetan government was abolished, he fled, eventually working for the Tibetan government-in-exile in Nepal. He represented the Dalai Lama in Nepal, and in 1986 was transferred to the United States, where he served as the Dalai Lama's representative to the Americas. He is deeply involved with the Tibetan people, helping to resettle over 1000 refugees in the United States. He continues to devote his life to Tibet and the Dalai Lama.
Along with his unique life story, we are recording other Tibetans in the United States telling their stories of escape, exile, and building a new life in a new country while staying connected to Tibet.
Thank you for being a supporter of our film project, The Truth About Tibet: Hear Their Stories. Before you leave the office for the long weekend, mark you calendar for October 16th. Next Wednesday, Global Giving is running its second ever Regional Bonus Day. This means that for every donation you make, Global Giving will match your donation 30%. PLUS the project that raises the most money on that day will win an additional $1000 from Global Giving.
As you may remember from our last update, we have big plans for our Tibet Project. This spring, we are hoping to travel to Dharamshala, India where we will interview Tibetans who have unique visions for the world without human rights abuses. Through our Tibetan contacts, the 3 Generations team has secured rare interviews with high-ranking Tibetan rinpoches, as well as other lamas and spiritual leaders who have powerful visions for the future. The visions and stories of governmental leaders will also be incorporated into this project. The interviews will be edited for 3 Generations’ website, as well as incorporated into our short film project Imagine the End of Atrocity.
We need your help to make this project possible! If you can, please consider donating on October 16th and support our project once more. All you have to do is log in anytime between OCT. 15th at 9:01 pm and OCTOBER 16th at 8:59, and donate.
Once again, thank you all for your continued support and enjoy the long weekend!
