Dharamshala: Sikyong Penpa Tsering of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) interacted with fellows of Dishom Foundation earlier today who were visiting the Central Tibetan Administration for the first time.
The visiting fellows have come from diverse geographical, social, economic, cultural and ideological backgrounds to learn and deepen their context about the current position of Tibet’s cause, the aims and efforts of CTA among other key subjects.
During the two hour-long interaction at the Kashag Secretariat, Sikyong enlightened the group on the historical Teacher-Student (Guru-Chela) relationship between Tibet and India supplemented by the origination of Tibetan script and Tibetan Buddhism from India. During the two-hour interaction, the historical facts of Tibet were explored and discussed at length while countering China’s tampering of the factual record and their profuse attempt to mislead the world into believing its false claim over Tibet through its distorded narrative.
An array of subjects were highlighted and explained by Sikyong about rehabilitation and livelihood exiled Tibetans in general and in particular about the gigantic contributions of His Holiness the Dalai Lama into 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.
