On December 15th, 2011, a special talk program titled "Basics of Tibetan Buddhism with an Overview of Tara (Dolma). Similar program was conducted in the 2nd Reading Room, Swoyambhu.
Though it is immensely difficult to share the whole meaning of the Dolma-probably the most chanted prayers in Tibetan Buddhism after Om Mane Padme Hun, in just couple of hours, the resource person made it simple and provided participants with gist of Dolma prayer. And the fact that the resource person was also from Himalayan ethnic community helped the audiences to connect with the program well. Out of love for own community, the resource person urged people not to involve in any kind of tobacco or alcoholic activities.The resource person used real and catchy examples in between the program which helped the participants to understand the theme of the program better.
