Student Exchange Group in the Month of September

This month Lha hosted a student group from Tulane University's School of Social Work in New Orleans. The nine students and two professors were in Dharamshala for two weeks. During their stay, the students were paired with Lha's students to help them improve their English language. They also volunteered at Tonglen Charitable Trust in Dharamshala for few days.

Apart from volunteering at non-government organisations, Lha organised two talks for the student group by two prominent local people and a visit to AmaAdhe – a former Tibetan political prisoner. Geshe Lhakdor gave them a talk on Mental Health and Happiness through Mind Training.
His Eminence Professor Samdhong Rinpoche spoke to the students on Tibetan perspectives on death and dying, and the importance of having a healthy relationship with this natural part of life in Lha's Ahimsa House.
Rinpoche explained the topics – the concept of death, how different believers have different way of looking at death, the nature of death in the Buddhist perspective and fear of death. In addition, Rinpoche shared many important insights on the understanding of death and its process. The talk ended with a question and answer session with the students. His talk was streamed live and is available on Prof Samdhong Rinpoche's Youtube channel.

Every summer, Lha Charitable Trust works with student groups from the School of Social Work from Tulane University, Centenary College, Loyola University, Rustic Path Way, Lifework International and other United States universities and high schools as well as students from a Mexican university.
