Tsering Lodoe, (known in the Tibetan community as “Ghost” and Lodoe in the West) joins Sedona Spotlight (formerly the Natural Choice Network), in their ongoing efforts to help provide Safe Clean Drinking Water to the Hopi and Navajo along with the Clean Water Foundation of Washington and Airline Ambassadors.

At a recent event in Sedona, AZ, Lodoe performed sacred Tibetan Music and Dance to help raise awareness of the criminal lack of clean safe water on the Hopi and Navaho reservations. Upon seeing their sacred dances and meeting many members of the tribe, he felt an instant deep-rooted connection with the Hopi. Lodoe was amazed how profoundly similar certain aspects of traditional dance and sacred rituals of the Native Americans were to their own. He was especially stuck by the kinship he felt with the Hopi and the common words shared by both languages. Following the event, Lodoe has pledged to help spread the message of their vital need for clean safe drinking water on their homeland. He also wants to explore and re-kindle the long-lost Hopi Tibetan connection, prophesied over 1,200 years ago by the great Tibetan Master Guru Rinpoche.
1,200 years ago, Master Guru Rinpoche wrote an inscription and hid it in the red rocks just outside Sedona, which was only discovered in recent years.
The prophecy says, “Later, when the iron bird flies, then the Red-Robed ones (Tibetans) will go to the red rocks and meet with the tradition there (Hopi) and unite again”
That time is NOW!
Lodoe is a born storyteller, and we believe he was born to tell this story. This story could also help unite all of mankind, along with our sacred relationship with water and Mother Earth. I can’t wait to see what unfolds Brother to Brother, and the collective wisdom that will be revealed to help us change our ways to align to the Path of awakening, instead of the path to destruction. Welcome Lodoe!
Tsering Lodoe was born into a Tibetan refugee family in India and studied at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA) in Dharamsala, which was established under His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama’s guidance.
Lodoe continued his affiliation with TIPA for more than 23 years, earning advanced degrees in all aspects of traditional Tibetan music and performing arts. Lodoe was the lead singer on the soundtrack in the internationally acclaimed film “Himalaya,” and can also be heard on the sound track of “Seven Years in Tibet.” He has sung for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Pope John Paul II.
