Listen to Khen Rinpoche tell a recent Siddhartha School graduate a story about why he started Siddhartha School.
“I like being with children and talking to them and, even more, playing with them. For the moment I forget that I am terribly old and it is very long ago since I was a child.” Jawahar Lal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister and Siddhartha School Hero.
“I find the tiger to be a self independent animal. I would like to be a self independent being, so I find similarities between my desire and the strength of a tiger. But as all beings want the reassurance that their parents love is unconditional and forever, so I see the mother tiger as my hero because she is powerful and loving.” Stanzin Namgyal, Class 7.
Dear friends in the New England area, Please note that Khen Rinpoche will be speaking at MECA on WEDNESDAY, NOT ON MONDAY.
