Tibetan King Returns to Speak With Community in March

21-year-old royalty will hold free, open 2-hour session for residents on March 7 at West Morris Central High School.

When the king of Tibet visited West Morris Central High School recently, the presentation was so strong, so intriguing that the faculty knew it couldn't stop there.

Now Lhagyari Trichen Namgyal Wangchuk – you can call him Trichen (Tree-chen) – a 21-year-old student at Gettysburg College will be back to air his documentary and speak with the community at large on March 7 in a free event open to the public.

Trichen, who is college roommates with Central grad and Long Valley resident Andrew Sydenstricker, spoke with some 200 students in late January about the struggles his homeland faces, why he has come to America, and his relationship with the Dalai Lama.

On March 7 at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium, Trichen will again show his 27-minute film, titled "My Country is Tibet" and take questions from residents. The event is scheduled for two hours. 

During his question and answer session with Central students, Trichen spoke honestly about everything from his decision to come to America, to how his family has been treated in and out of Tibet, and what parts of the English language he finds odd.
