Meeting Sogyal Rinpoche in Zürich

Meeting Sogyal Rinpoche in Zürich

Dear friends,

I had the big honour of meeting the great Buddhist Master and author of the book of "LIVING AND DYING" Sogyal Rinpoche during his teachings last week in Zurich. It was a beautiful meeting and Rinpoche encouraged me to travel all around the world to touch people's heart through the sound of the Tibetan Mantras. At the end of his teachings Rinpoche spontaneously asked me to sing a Mantra. It was a great pleasure for me to dedicate the OM MANI PEME HUM Mantra for him and to thank Rinpoche for his untiring efforts to help millions of people around the world in their most difficult phases of their lifes with his books and inspirations.

With my sincere wishes,

Bringing the ancient wisdom of Tibet into the modern world of fashion

Bringing the ancient wisdom of Tibet into the modern world of fashion

My dear friends,

I am not a fashion victim, but I love beautiful fabrics, colours and style that makes every woman feel like a princess. It was the first time in my life that I attended a fashion show and even had one of the top designers of Poland of the show, Mrs. Viola Spiechovicz design a "Tibet inspired" lovely black dress for me. My producer Helge van Dyk, whose wife Natalia Glowacka is the initiator of the WARSAW FASHION WEEKEND, rearranged and created a new song that I could sing as a duett with famous Natalia Kukulksa while the "Spiritual Freelance" Tibet Collection of Viola was presented. We both enjoyed singing and performing together and I think together with the beautiful Sitar by Thomas Niggli from Zurich, we both enchanted this event in a very special way. 

Performing at Warsaw Fashion Week

Performing at Warsaw Fashion Week in Poland

I am really looking forward to perform the first time in Poland. Poland has always shown great interest in the Tibetan culture and I am happy I can 
bring my music to Poland during the Warsaw Fashion Week. I think modern societies like to be inspired by fashion and music that uplifts them and gives them
a good feeling. As a Tibetan Artist who grew up in Switzerland I am infused with both the Eastern and Western culture and this beautifully reflects in my music.
 
Performing at this year's Warsaw Fashion Week with the theme "SPIRITUAL FREELANCER" is very exciting and gives me the chance to introduce the positive energy
of the ancient Tibetan Mantras to an open minded audience who plays an important role to shape a modern society. I am also looking forward to collaborating with 
the famous Polish singer Natalia Kulkulska whom I met a month ago in Sopot. We will perform a song together that my producer Helge van Dyk created especially for
us for this event and I have the feeling that the Polish people will really love it. I also met one of the leading Polish designers, Viola Spiechowicz who will present her new
collection at the fashion show. I like her style and the beautiful fabric and colors that she uses.

Dear friends,

I am very happy to share with you the following news. Because of the success of my various music activities we have been able to initiate the DEWA CHE Foundation that has supported already many great social projects in Chokri in Eastern Tibet as well as in Dharamsala in India. This time we have been able to sponsor the traditional costumes for the "Tibet Culture Association Lithang in Switzerland". Lithang is very famous for its beautiful traditional costumes and dances. It is wonderful to see the young tibetan boys and girls from Lithang keeping up their graceful traditional dances and preserving an important part of the Tibetan Culture also here in Switzerland.

 

What a beautiful couple!
