Inter-School Declamation – 3rd October 2014

Inter-School Declamation – 3rd October 2014

The celebration of Gandhi Jayanti was observed as “International Day of Non-Voilence” as declared by United Nations. This year is the 150th birth anniversary of the father of the nation – Mahatma Gandhi. The program was scheduled on the birthday of Gandhiji but with the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama along with two Noble Laureates – Judy William and Shrin Edabi  on the 2nd October, the program was postponed until 3rd October. We organized Inter-School Declamation focusing on “The power of non-violence”.  The program was dedicated to express our gratitude to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and also to thank the government of India for being an excellent host for the Tibetans since 1959. We have four schools participating in the declamation and feel obliged to DAV and Gurukul for their active participation in spite of the fact that the day also coincided with Deshera celebration. We have two participants from each school and all of them spoke with perfect flow of the language focusing on the power of non-violence.  The program began with traditional dance and ended with a group song by class XI befitting the day. We are indeed very grateful to our chief guest Mr. Desh Raj – DSP for being with us despite his very busy schedule. Mementos and certificate were presented to all the participants.

Conclusion of Dialectic Month

Conclusion of Dialectic Month

DSCN1316

A month long training on the arts of dialectic was organized with the help extended from The Dialectic School from Tsug-Lag-Khang. A specific time was allotted for the training by readjusting our normal time table for duration of one month. This program was revived as per the expressed concern shown by His Holiness the Dalai Lama on several occasions. Back in the initial stage when the Tibetan schools were first established in early sixties, learned Geshe Las used to be the Tibetan teachers who not only taught Tibetan but also built a very strong base in the dialectic mode of learning in tune with the monastic training. This strong mode of learning by applying logic and sharp analytical deduction makes your learning meaningful and personal.

We are very lucky to have three of our religious teachers who have worked very hard to bring about a positive change to have a strong base in the dialectic and logical skill of learning.  Teaming with senior monks from the Dialectic school is no doubt very supportive and the partnership brought about visible change in our students learning activities. The program was implemented in all our classes. Both the principal and the director encouraged our student to use this powerful mode of learning to improve themselves scholastically according to their capabilities and aptitude.

Exhibition of Tibetan Calligraphy in art form- September 9th and 10th

Exhibition of Tibetan Calligraphy in art form

2 (a)

We are very happy to have Mr. Jamyang Dorjee Chakrishar visit us and exhibit his masterpiece artwork to students and staff in TCV for two days. His art work is very unique and has a touch of divinity. Unlike Thangka painting his artwork is based on Tibetan calligraphy and outline  and actual drawings are with mantras, prayers and philosophical texts. The image of Buddha is drawn with Heart Sutra text and so is Tara with Tara prayers. Unique Tibetan calligraphy blends with traditional as well as modern art form   is indeed  an innovative step in bringing Tibetan Calligraphy to an international standard. During his recent exhibition in New York, New Delhi and other metropolitan cities his art gallery was converged with many curators and intellectual personalities who commended with deep respect and appreciation.  Visitors to his exhibition revealed their true feeling with awestruck expression on their faces. One hour presentation with PowerPoint to the senior students made our students highly motivated and proud of our rich heritage. The high lights of his talk was based on Tibetan calligraphy in art form. Students were seen surrounding him with the request to have their name written by the artist with an artistic touch.

Besides being the first artist to use Tibetan calligraphy for artwork he also holds world record for producing the longest calligraphy scroll which is 163 meter long and weighs about 53 kg. He is a retired Joint Secretary to the Government of Sikkim and worked for several years in CTA in various capacities. His contribution in the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts as a director gave a new facelift to the institute. He is presently the coordinator for Trans Himalayan Arts and Culture which is based in Washington DC. Thank you Jamyang La for your valuable time  with us.

Under the able leadership of school captain Tamding Thar and Norbu Dolma, the student council along with the senior students organized STAFF DAY very efficiently with a touch of sincerity and strong bondage of love and respect. Staff members had a day off and were kept very busy with series of programs which distracted us from our serious work. This has rejuvenated our spirit and cemented our relationship with our students with strong bondage.

As a part of the celebration for the expression of our gratitude to His Holiness the Dalai Lama the program began with lightening of lamps by the chief guest – retired colonel Penpa Tsering – the secretary Tibetan Homes Foundation and TCV president Mr. Tsewang Yeshi. This was followed by scarf offering by all the students and student council.

The formal function began with introductory speeches by the captains and prefects and concluded with key note speech by the chief guest Retired Colonel Penpa Tsering. Like any defense personnel his deliberation focused on diligence, discipline and health.

Owing to continues downpour, the school council very smartly launched their plan B and kept us all engaged with various entertaining games that filled the hall with laughter and smiles. Dekyi Tsering Hall wore a complete new look with very attractive decoration and staff were ushered in and served a very relishing luncheon.

In the midst of heavy shower there was football match between staff and students. Being the staff day students were very considerate and let staff stride the field proudly by winning over students. The evening program in the hall took us to the entertainment world and showed us songs and dances that the present generation follows like their own shadow.

THANK YOU FOR THE GOOD TIME WE HAD IN THE MIDST OF OUR HEAVY DUTY.

Talk by former Katri prof. Samdhong Rinpoche – July 25th

Talk by former Katri prof. Samdhong Rinpoche – July 25th

DSCN0995

We are very fortunate to have former Katri prof. Samdhong Rinpoche visit us and gave a very penetrating and scholastic talk pertaining to the propitiation of Dogyal. This was the outcome of the volley of questions posed to the speaker Mr. Penpa Tsering and Sikhong Dr. Lobsang Sengye during summer teaching. It looks increasingly apparent that many youngsters do not have the clear understanding of Dogyal propitiation and incessant problems in our society because of Dogyal connections. The most respected and learned Samdhong Rinpoche focused his delivery on those unanswered questions which left many in the cloud of mystery. Rinpoche with his vast mine of knowledge tackled these doubts and questions with historical and legal prospective and made all of us in the hall undoubtedly pristine clear and shed all our doubts. One and half hours of talk followed by another hour of question answer session was without an iota of doubt very clear and penetrating.
