The Milarepa Foundation rejoices on another anniversary of India’s independence (1947). To mark the occasion the Milarepa Foundation sent special greetings to Her Excellency Anita Nayar, Indian Ambassador to Chile, and a Flag-hoisting ceremony took place on the morning of the 15th August on the Foundation’s premises. We remembered the words of Pandit Nehru in August 1947:

“Long years ago, we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. It is fitting that at this solemn moment we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity with some pride.”1
