    This is wonderful! An inspiration to the Tibetan community particularly girls and women. I encourage everyone to make “2018 Machik year” by sharing the work of Machik in social media. Please share this link http://www.machik.org/ with all your friends, family and community on social media. Thank you Tashi Rabgey la and Losang Rabgey la for your tireless contribution in educating Tibetans in Tibet.
