His Holiness Khenzur Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan

I feel these children are special for me because as a Buddhist monk I have been trained in Buddhist philosophy love, compassion and care for others more than oneself. I love children especially these worthy children of Siddhartha High School. . I consider them the seed for the future of Ladakh and the world as a whole. I believe they will bring peace and harmony other than to themselves by what they learn in the school. So I think children are important. Also I want to pay my deepest gratitude to all the sponsors and donors of Siddhartha School Partnership USA, Les Enfants Du Sourire, Switzerland and all other supporters of Siddhartha High School all over the world for their kind and continuous support for the children as well as to the school. May the blessings of precious Triple Gems be upon you forever.

I have been the member of the Society since the school was founded and it brings immense pleasure to me every day to serve the school with all my efforts. It is an honor for me to work with our dearest founder Khenzur Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan who dedicated his precious days of his life to develop the school. I as the Secretary of Siddhartha Culture and Welfare Society would like pay my sincere gratitude  to all the other members of the Society, Managing Committee of the school, Principal and all our dynamic and dedicated teachers who are the backbone of the school to get the school to the higher level. I hope to work with you all to uplift Siddhartha High School in future with best of my endeavor. Wish you all best of luck.

As I start to write my thoughts a lot comes to my mind. I feel great to share with you all. I am very blessed to work with such dedicated, innovative and caring staff members, parents and students. It always gives me great pleasure to see the sea of smiling faces of children and I must say that on many days it is the students who make my day a little brighter. If there is one thing that can change the world, it is education and schools are pillars of formal education. Along with the formal education to the students, this school aspires more, we believe in experimental learning, teaching with values, focuses on the social emotional learning. “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn”. We believe that each child is unique. We take parents’ support to know more about the child, so that we come together on the child’s strength and help him/ her in the journey to discover himself/herself. I also want the children to be passionate about their dreams. I wish to empower our children with the courage to continue believing in themselves even in the face of adversity. The school also provides encouragement to the children for self growth and helps them experience sense of achievement and joy.
