Excellent report for Tsoknyi Gechak School

The groundbreaking initiative at Tsoknyi Gechak School in Nepal has been featured in an article on an international Buddhist web  site.

Under the heading Moving with the Times: An Integrated Education for Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s Nuns, the school’s progress was documented in the New Lotus e-magazine, published by buddhistdoor.com.

The report, written by Crina Radu, is illustrated by photographer Michael Ash, one of Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s students.

“The school, which provides the young nuns with a modern education, was founded two years ago,” the report says. “While it follows the Nepali government curriculum, it also seeks to add an ethical dimension to the secular subjects by integrating the Dharma into the classroom.”
