Tibetan Performing Arts in the ShangShung Institute, Italy,
Venerable Rinpoche has been dedicating his life for the preservation and promotion of all aspects of Tibetan culture. Tibetan performing arts which encompasses singing and dancing among others is also a very important part of the Tibetan tradition especially for the lay people. As such venerable Rinpoche asked us if we, Topgyal and Tsering Dolker, to take some initiative in this field.
We are therefore resolved to do our level best and try to fulfill venerable Rinpoche’s selfless wish by taking charge of teaching Tibetan performing arts not only in Merigar West but also in most of our Gars if possible. We have been working on ourselves to improve our skills and expertise in this area constantly with the motivation of serving our Gars and Lings whenever needed.
But our readiness would not mean much if we lack the necessary support and help of our Institutes, Gars, Lings, Asia and most importantly from the individual members. Taking this opportunity we would like to request all our members and the Dzogchen communities to lend us your helping hands and supporting advices to strive together to promote Tibetan performing arts.
Most of you know what our project would look like but for the sake of our new comers we would like to give you an outline of what we will do. We organize Tibetan song and dance classes including Tibetan language Pronunciation sessions. We will provide Dra Nyen ( Tibetan Guitar ) learning lessons, Tibetan children’s rhyming songs for children, teaching children aspect of Tibetan culture by doing together etc. We are sure we will be able to cater to the needs and interests of various kinds of people irrespective their age although for our convenience we might classify participants into two groups namely an adult group and a children’s group. We believe our time and effort would be most productive if we start only when there are at least 4 people in each group.
Please never hesitate to contact us for clarifications, suggestions or anything you would like to share with us.
With many Tashi Delek,
