Tibetan Buddhist Child Monks of Tsechokling Monastery add artistic flavor to McLeod Ganj

Dharamshala: Nestled against the cliff off an alley leading down from McLeod Ganj's main square, the Tsechokling Monastery generally goes unknown to those who have no specific business there; its location seems like it was chosen for secrecy. On Wednesday October 22, however, Tsechokling's secret was out, as it opened its doors to locals and foreigners alike for a one-day mixed media art exhibition organized by the Half Moon Project entitled "Inner Reflections: A Creative Journey through Art by Child Monks of Tsechokling Monastery."

Tibet Hope Center enables many new refugees to adjust

Dharamshala: When Mr. Kunsang Tenzing was attending classes at Saint Joseph's University, little did he know that his inner passion—just a flicker at the time—to foster a sense of love and kinship for needy Tibetans would transform into a meaningful and worthwhile organization. Tenzin is now director of the Tibet Hope Center, which offers classes in all levels of English conversation and grammar, and also initiates many much-needed community projects.

Curb on Tibetan language in exams exposes China's marginalisation policy in Tibet

Dharamshala: A recent case of forcible prevention of candidates from using Tibetan language as a medium in examinations in Tibet has clearly exposed the Chinese government's policy of enforcing the use of Chinese language in order to marginalise the traditional language of Tibetans and the denial of equal rights to nationalities in Tibet, sources in Tibet said.
