ITHACA, N.Y. — The Namgyal Monastery, which sits on Ithaca’s South Hill, will celebrate the 84th birthday of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama on Saturday, July 6. The event will feature talks and performances by members of the Tibetan Association of Ithaca and will give community members an opportunity to learn about Buddhism and Tibetan culture.The Namgyal Monastery Institute of Buddhist Studies was established in Ithaca in 1992 to allow Western students to study Tibetan Buddhism in a monastic setting. The original Namgyal Monastery was founded in Lhasa, Tibet in the 16th century next to the residence of the 2nd Dalai Lama, Gendun Gyatso. When the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, fled into exile in 1959 after the Tibetan uprising against the Chinese military, he took up residence in Dharamsala, India and the Namgyal Monastery was re-established there. The Ithaca monastery is considered a branch of the Dharamsala monastery.Related: Expansion at Namgyal Monastery: Library and museum will be treasury of Dalai Lama works in IthacaThe 2018 celebration of the Dalai Lama’s birthday in Ithaca.

Frizi/iStock(NEW YORK) — After three months without surface lava activity, the U.S. Geological Survey says the eruption of Hawaii’s Kilauea can be considered over.The USGS notes that Kilauea remains an active volcano, and eruptions are likely in the future. Kilauea erupted in May, throwing ash into the atmosphere and releasing lava into the ocean at multiple sites. The eruption slowed over the summer, and the last active lava was reported at the surface in September. Ninety days of inactivity led the USGS to declare the eruption over.One of five volcanoes on the Island of Hawaii, Kilauea has been eruption “continuously” since 1983. With more than three months since reported lava, however, that eruption is likely to have come to an end. The Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Project states that a volcano without eruptive activity for three months is not classified as having a “continuing” eruption.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
