On Day 3 of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s visit to the Bay Area, our local Tibetan community, the Tibetan Association of Northern California (TANC), got a wonderful double blessing when His Holiness blessed our Community Center in Richmond and gave a talk in Berkeley, also hosted by TANC, on How to Achieve Happiness.  Still two more days of visits, and more images, to come! Our community is feeling blessed!
