Lama Rinzin was sent to Sheffield, UK, by the Home Office and by chance ended up doors away from the Sheffield Buddhist Centre. He has now become a much loved and valued member of the Buddhist Community in Sheffield and is able to put his rare talent to use, painting beautiful images for the Buddhist Community and teaching others about Buddhism and Meditation. If he was allowed to stay he would have his own source of income from painting and would make a massive contribution to the growing local Buddhist Community through his knowledge of Buddhism and Meditation and through his calming, compassionate presence.

His 2 previous hearings have rejected his case, but a judge has ruled this was due to flawed judgements and so he has been awarded a fresh hearing in October.We want to hand this petition to the Home Office to show how much support there is for Lama Rinzin to stay in the UK, where he will be safe and able to contribute so much.

May I ENCOURAGE all visitors to Care2 to put pressure on your people in congress. a free Tibet has been fought for by many of us who are in a constant battle against Chinese oppression within Tibet on all its citizens. a prominent hotel group would also like to build an 1100 hundred room hotel there.what happens in Tibet will affect the free world at a later date.boycott Chinese products & say why your doing it.T.Y.
