what: code

The Geek Room is about coding — programming. Mostly web programming. Resources for learning everything are here.

It is just an extension of James' own room, big enough for ཟབ་སྦྱོང་། (sabjong) for advanced web development and WordPress, free and open to all, with a focus on serving the Tibetan IT community.

And the room is available for local techies working on IT projects, holding meetings and workshops and classes, coding and reading and thinking. It is located in McLeod Ganj.

what: peace

"We all talk about 'peace, peace', but peace doesn't fall from the sky. We have to do something to create it. Human beings have to solve their problems themselves. And the right way to create peace is to engage in dialogue."

When asked what makes him happy, he replied that he is happy to be one human being among the 7 billion others.

He gave a teaching about a path in life in which one uses all one's energy in serving others.

— The Dalai Lama, Hamburg, Germany, August 2014

Do you really think that peace will come
some other place than here?
in some other time than now?
in some other heart than yours?
