'Exhibition on H.H the Dalai Lama's Body of work' is a project that I initiated on 10th December 2012. In the past two and half years, I was able to conduct over forty-five presentations primarily in centers of learning and other places all over India.
The aim of this project is to inculcate in the minds of the truth and peace-loving people, a sense of recognition and gratitude for the gift of wisdom bestowed by His Holiness on how to live a meaningful life. Moreover, it also seeks to spread words about the deeds and accomplishments of His Holiness throughout his life as a guiding light to us all.
Some of my forthcoming projects are as follow;
1)To conduct a scholar debate on His Holiness's Thoughts & Ideas on Religion, Politics, Health, Environment, Compassion and other disciplines by a panel of experts related and intimate with His Holiness.
2)Reading comprehension contest on His Holiness's multi-faced works in their proper disciplinary entity.
3)The ranking essays of this competition will be published in 'Khongsa Chok-kyi khyen-pa,' which will be a journal of scholarly articles to be launched soon. Therefore, I request professional and other aspirant writers from everywhere to support me in this venture by contributing their articles on any of the following three topics.
