posted in: Balloon, Events, Media Coverage | 0

The inauguration ceremony for the Tibet Balloon was held at the the Buddhist Monastery of Garraf near Barcelona in northern Spain.

The Tibet Balloon was blessed by the Most Venerable Jamyang Tashi Dorje Rinpoche, and given the Tibetan Buddhist names of Tashi (‘auspicious’) and Gyaltsen (‘victory banner’). She will now be affectionately known as ‘Tashi’ and will fly around the world to spread a message of peace and compassion and to raise awareness of the situation of the people of Tibet, whose culture, language and identity is under threat.

Below we present a small video clip of the ceremony taking place.
