We were all deeply saddened to learn of the passing-away of Dr Pema Dorjee in Dharamsala on the 8th of September.

Tibet Foundation will be holding a Memorial Gathering for Dr Dorjee at the Tibetan Peace Garden, in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park (adjacent to the Imperial War Museum) on Friday the 18th of September at 7pm, followed by a reception at Tibet Foundation: 5 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7XW.

Dr Dorjee was one of the foremost experts on Tibetan Medicine. Born in Tibet in 1950, Dr Dorjee crossed the Himalayas to India in the aftermath of the Dalai Lama's flight in 1959. He completed his medical studies in 1974 under the renowned Professor Dr Barshi Phuntsok at the Men-Tsee-Khang, also known as the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute.

Dr Dorjee was instrumental in the development of the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute (TMAI) in exile in Dharamsala, India, and has served terms as the Chairman of the Central Council of Tibetan Medicine.Dr Dorjee has been visiting the UK with Tibet Foundation since the late 1980s, most recently in May of this year. He was loved and greatly respected by Tibetans and Westerners alike. Dr Dorjee leaves a wife, two daughters and a son.

All are welcome. Please meet at the Peace Garden for 7pm.
