June Teaching By His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Around 172 students from class XII got the golden opportunity to attend two days religious teaching by His Holiness the Dalai Lama from May 27- May 28 at TCV School Upper Dharamsala. The students were accompanied by their class and subject teachers in addition to hostel warden and matrons.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s discourse was in the morning while in the afternoon, students have to attend the debating session with senior monks (Geshe) about various tenets of Buddhism. For all the students it was a great opportunity and helped a lot in understanding tenets of Buddhism. It was a great learning experience, thanks to the kind hospitality shown by the host school and organization committee for such an arrangement.
On May 29th TCV schools offered a special prayer of long life (Tenshug) to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. During Tenshug, of total 60 members from Tibetan Children’s Village Gopalpur, 15 members were staff and the remaining 45 members were students. The students who had been in the June teaching had been made to stay until June 30 to enjoy the cultural programs to be performed by Tibetans from in and around Dharamsala. On June 30, students wishing to go for 10 day summer vacation with guarantors will be sent for the vacation directly from UTCV and the remaining students had to come back to school.
