Description

Tibetan Home of Hope Benefit Concert

featuring Krishna Das

Co-hosted by Kirtan Wallah Foundation

 

Thursday, May 30th at 7:30pm at the Tarrytown Music Hall​: Krishna Das will perform a

special benefit concert to support the Tibetan orphanage, Home of Hope. Krishna Das is an American vocalist known for his performances of devotional music. Layering traditional kirtan with modern instrumentation, he has become the best-selling western chant artist of all time. He performed at the 2013 Grammy Awards, when his album, Live Ananda, was nominated in the Best New Age album category. “The chanting just hits you and you want to be a part of it,” Krishna Das promises. “You get lit up. You don’t have to know what it means.”

 

The Tibetan Home of Hope (HoH) is a nonsectarian home and school where children

who would otherwise be abandoned receive loving care, food, shelter, education, medical attention and the practical foundation needed to develop into independent adults. HoH is dedicated to the sustainability of the Tibetan people and of their cultural heritage and its connection to nature.

 

HoH’s founder, Tashi Dolma, is a trained medical doctor who left her homeland of

Amdo, Tibet, in the winter of 1990. Her journey brought her to Bodhgaya, India, where

she received Kalachakra Teaching. Tashi Dolma and her family now live in New York.

She founded the orphanage in 2006. “We are unique in that it is not our intent to send

children to adoptive families,” she explains. “Our goal is to contribute to the preservation

of Tibetan culture, while supplying the children with the best care and education possible

within their homeland. Our responsibility to each child does not end at any point, but

continues in a family tradition for life.”

 

Proceeds from the benefit concert will support HoH in continuing to provide a safe haven

for children to thrive academically, connect with their culture, and experience elements of

the loving home environment that every child needs and deserves.

 

Tibetan Home of Hope is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations to support its

work are gratefully accepted at tibetanhomeofhope.org/donate. For more information,
