Lhakar translates to “white Wednesday” in Tibetan and is astrologically recognized as an auspicious day for H.H. the Dalai Lama and therefore considered a special day in the week to honor Him and all that He represents for Tibetans. In recent years, Lhakar has additionally become a worldwide movement to embrace Tibetan culture and identity. People observe Lhakar on Wednesdays by intentionally speaking Tibetan, eating Tibetan food, wearing traditional clothes, and shopping at Tibetan owned businesses, symbolically uniting Tibetans around the world in the diaspora and inside Tibet.
