Sachen_B.jpg

This new subdivision school of Sakya College is located at Dekyiling Tibetan Settlement in Dehradun district of Uttarakhand State, India. Although this school plays a vital role in nurturing the students akin to other regular primary schools, being a primary school specially enabling the students to enter the Buddhist colleges and shedras, this school is unique in a sense of providing classes and choosing students. The school will be nurturing only small monks, providing them with classes – primarily focused on Tibetan languages– along with English, Mandarin, Hindi, maths, rituals and liturgies, history, religious history and Buddhism. After having studied all these subjects which will be taught in regular classroom style, students who complete the class equivalent to 8th grade or possess the equal knowledge will be liable candidates to enter any colleges for higher Buddhist studies. Thus, this school aims to serve as a fundamental ground to produce global and individual happiness by harbouring students who will have mastered the science of Buddhism and propagate the message of peace Buddhism.

Features of the school

Objectives
The purpose of establishing this school is to give opportunity of learning to those destitute students from himalayan region and other remote areas who, despite having keen aptitude for studies, couldn't get access to formal studies; and to those students who despite having access to studies but still couldn't learn both classical and modern studies simultaneously. The school will play pivotal role in equipping students with fundamental knowledge such as Tibetan grammar, vocabulary and poetry, histories related with Buddhism, liturgical studies and so on, which are the basic requirements for getting admissions in traditional colleges like Sakya College. All these efforts are being done in order to increase the numbers of students required in higher traditional colleges, and to increase the qualitative numbers of students endowed with both traditional and modern knowledge. Ultimately, we aim to spread the teachings of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni – the source of global peace – through these endeavours because the Dharma is the timely solutions for the wandering humans who have lost touch with their inner qualities in this modern era.
