On Aug. 16 Sravasti Abbey will welcome  Venerable Thubten Lobsang (formerly Brian Lawson) to its monastic community.

Sravasti will welcome him during its Sharing the Dharma Day program, where he will be introduced, share his story and have a question and answer session with the other monastics.

The Sharing the Dharma program begins at 9:45 a.m. and Lobsang’s celebration will begin around 1:45 p.m. RSVp is requested by emailing the abbey at [email protected].
