Vice Chancellor's visit to College

Honorable Vice Chancellor of the Royal University of Bhutan Dasho Dr. Pema Thinley visited our College today at around 8:30 AM and had audience with the trainees and the Lecturers in our auditorium at 9:00 AM in the morning.Honorable Dasho gave us a thoughtful talks which is very much relevant for our profession....
   
"....our gathering today I suppose is due to our past connections, karmic gathering and good merits of every individual gathered here.I take it as opportunity where we get time to celebrate together. It is a 'Tendrel'  and we have to celebrate it............... 

.......Teachers plays a vital role in enhancing the personal happiness of the society. Level of living and happiness can be increased by teachers which ultimately fulfills the aspects of our country's philosophy Gross National Happiness......
.......the world around is our reflection. It reflects about how we view the world. We have to know that even in a bad person have the goodness in him or her. They hardly show like a lightning but we have to be vigilant to see that goodness in that bad person.......

......teaching is all about basic goodness of human beings. We have to teach the children that every moment is precious and different. Each different moment can change our living. Every moment we are changing. Death is just a one big perspective of oneself otherwise we are actually dying every seconds as it ticks on....

......we have to remember that everything is impermanent but at the same time we have to keep in mind the cause and effects. Cause and effects are two inseparable things that surrounds our living. We have to be very Mindful about it and search our soul......because mindfulness is the root of GNH I suppose....

Honorable Vice Chancellor of Royal University of Bhuta, Dasho Pema Thinley
.....you know why do we offer water as 'Choepa' instead of rice, butter etc? This is because water is bountiful  and it is pure offering as we do not feel its finishing like butter which becomes less in quantity if we offer seven cups at alter. Similarly , our teaching is holistic and pure. We have to teach form the heart and let the children learn and live their life happily. Because happiness is the ultimate destination that human beings are looking for................''

Though the main purpose of Dasho's visit was to inaugurate the three new self catering buildings yet we expected Dasho to highlight on the changed in the Ministry and Royal University ie about the entrance examination for the teacher graduates but may be due to time factor, Dasho however could not convience us...
