Mani Tsendon


‘Mani Tsendon’ means the overnight chanting of the six-syllable mantra OM MANI PADME HUM which is the mantra of Compassion Buddha which completely purifies the four defeats of breaking the four vows of self-liberation and the five uninterrupted negative karmas. In short this is the essence of all Dharma  that’s the purest Dharma.
This program is organized by the school’s Cultural Committee which is led by the Assistant Headmaster with the religious teacher and the two music teachers of the school. All the staff and the students above class 6 participated in the program in three shifts – 7 p.m. to 12 midnight, 12 midnight to 3 a.m. and 3 a.m. to 6 in the morning. The expense for this is mostly dependent on the donation given by the staff and the students because we consider such rituals important to eliminate the evil and remove the obstacles shadowing the school. This also helps in bringing good health and prosperity in the community free from any kind of hindrances

DELEK HOSPITAL LAUNCHES TO MINIMIZE TB IN TIBETAN CHIDREN


To encounter the widespread disease of Tuberculosis (TB) in the exile community from a grass root level and ensuring the safety of the future generations, the Tibetan Delek Hospital, in association with John Hopkins University, launched a new project titled, “ZERO TB IN TIBETAN KIDS: Training to End TB Now’.

So a team of Dr. Kunchok Dorjee, coordinator of the Zero TB program accompanied by four nurses from Delek Hospital visited our school and through his presentation, highlighted an alarming information regarding the higher average of TB patient in the exile Tibetan community than that of India.

The procedure includes the case finding of the disease in the family and in case of doubt they are advised to go for further proper tests. If a person is found with the bacteria the precautionary steps were taken to prevent it from spreading.

The whole school underwent the procedure and fortunately not a single serious case was diagnosed. Thanks to the whole team of Delek Hospital for initiating such huge steps in eliminating the TB disease from the community. We wish them all the best of luck in achieving their mission soon in the near future.

TIBET DAY



His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in his recent speech in Oregon, US said, “When anyone wants to investigate Buddhist thought today, Tibetan language is the best means through which to do it.” He added, “Besides the acquisition of modern education, the preservation of Tibetan language, culture and Buddhism is important.”

Thus keeping this in mind every year in our school we observe ‘Tibet Week’ or ‘Tibet Day’ to promote and preserve the rich culture and heritage of Tibet. This year on ‘Tibet Day’, the Tibetan Committee members organized various programs throughout the day.

The seniors and the junior students had their programs separately. For the senior students they had the Tibetan Debate Contest for class 9, Tibetan Repartee Contest for class 8 and the recitation of love and patriotic poems and songs by the class 10 students.

The junior students started with the singing assembly and they had afternoon program full of dramas and plays.

It was a day full of learning as well as entertainment. Everyone performed extremely well. Good job!

INTRODUCTION TO FALUN DAFA or FALUN GONG


Falun Dafa or Falun Gong is an advanced practice of Buddha school self-cultivation, founded by Mr. Li Hongzhi, the practice’s master. It is a discipline in which “assimilation to the highest qualities of the universe – Zhen, Shan, Ren meaning Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance (Tolerance) – is the foundation of practice. It is a practice to train our mind, body and soul.

Ms. Chris, a practitioner of Falun Dafa came to our school to introduce the ‘FALUN DAFA’. She told us that it is practiced by many people in the world and this practice was specifically banned in China by the Chinese government. She narrated a bit of its history how it came into existence and how the Chinese government persecuted those who practice Falun Dafa in China. She even taught fine basic exercises of Falun Dafa almost to the whole school. Around more than 800 students and 50 teachers took part in the three sessions she took in a day. It was indeed a new venture for everyone.
