It is a little late for this update, but not too late that the event has passed. The Tibetan New Year, called Losar will be celebrated on the 25th of February. You can witness the celebrations in many Tibetan monasteries across the country. But not all places may celebrate losar, so it is best to check ahead.
One place where Losar is best witnessed is in Bylakuppe, a Tibetan settlement in Coorg. This year's Losar is likely to be all the more colourful with presence of His Holiness Dalailama at the monastery. So if you are in Bangalore, or close to any Tibetan monasteries up in the Himalayas, it is not too late to pack your bags and hurry. One of the prime attraction of Losar will be dances performed by the monks.
In case you are going to miss the Losar in Bylakuppe but still would wish to see Dalai Lama, he is going to be there for 10 more days. Call the monastery to check if he has any public appearances. See namdroling.org for contact details.
