Dharamshala: A student delegation of twenty-three accompanied by two teachers and a Tibetan coordinator from Denmark paid a visit to Kashag Secretariat this afternoon and met with Sikyong Penpa Tsering for an interactive session with him.
The delegation from Hojskolendk expressed a keen interest in Tibet Cause and Tibetan culture. In an hour-long interaction, Sikyong apprised the students of the Central Tibetan Administration’s structure and functioning, the exile Tibetan set-up, and the situation inside Tibet. He explained the historical facts of Tibet and discussed at length the repeated attempts by China to tamper with factual records and mislead the world into believing its false claim over Tibet through its distorted narrative.
An array of subjects were highlighted and explained by Sikyong such as the rehabilitation and livelihood of exiled Tibetans in general and in particular, the gigantic contributions of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to building a robust Tibetan exile community, Tibetan administration, establishment of democracy and the evolution of Tibetan democratic system in exile. In addition, he presented accounts of Tibet’s geographical and environmental significance for the Asiatic regions and communities during the interaction.
Sikyong further recommended they read Michael van Walt van Praag’s Tibet Brief 20/20 and The Status Of Tibet: History, Rights, And Prospects In International Law to get an in-depth understanding of Tibet’s history and the Tibetan cause.
