Dinner Party with Our Tibetan Ohana

Last evening my partner and I hosted a dinner party for our Tibetan friends. Two of them are monks who live in Dharamasala, India and who journeyed here as part of the Dalai Lama entourage. They came to our dinner party dressed like locals and not wearing their traditional robes. One of them is the main cook for the Dalai Lama; of them is a famous Lama; one of them is the niece of this Lama who lives in San Francisco, California, and the other one is her best girlfriend; one of the boys is a local boy (the one with the curly hair), and other one is the son of one of the Tibetan ladies. Three of them share the name Tenzin which is a popular Tibetan name in honor of the Dalai Lama whose name is Tenzin. Sweeter, more gracious, happy people you couldn't imagine. We are blessed to be considered their friends.

Ohana is an Hawaiian word which translates to extended family. Five of these people photographed here we have known for many years and share much personal history and many good times, both here in Hawaii and in India.

A nice array of photos. Have you considered putting them in a collage? would be fun to see in that format, too.
