Changing dynamics of Education in Tibet

The glorious past

Tibet has been a world leader in spiritual and cultural education since the time monasteries began to come up in the early 9th century. A land of Buddhism and open-minded philosophy, Tibet find home to most of the early Buddhist philosophies which travelled from India, and later towards East to China, Japan and erstwhile, Korea. However, only 13% of the population (less for girls) lived there, and many still were manual labourers educated only enough to chant their prayer books. Just two schools existed outside of the monasteries in Lhasa: one to train boys for ecclesiastical functions in the government and another, to prepare aristocrats with the proper etiquette for government services. Afterwards with the advent of globalisation in the 20th century, the government in Tibet allowed foreign groups, mainly English to establish secular schools in Lhasa. Tibet has a long and rich history as a nation inseparably linked to Tibetan Buddhism, existing side-by-side with China while political power in Asia shifted between empires and kingdoms. The change in powers led to an overall change in the government policies leading to change in all sectors, predominantly Education and Tourism. In present days, English education is indispensable and with the setting up of a high speed Fiber Optic Network in the Tibetan Autonomous Region, many Tibetan provinces have access to world class education.

Education in Tibet

Department of Education is one of the seven main departments of the executive organ of the Central Tibetan Administration. After coming into exile in 1959, His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama had given top priority to education and requested the then Indian Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru for establishing separate schools for Tibetan refugee children. It was established in 1960 to look after the educational affairs of the Tibetan administration and community in exile. The heart purpose of establishing schools for Tibetans was for provision of quality modern education and preservation of the Tibetan language and culture at the same time. This idea is commonly referred to as the twin-object of the Tibetan schools in exile and became the heart and soul of the Tibetan education policy. The overall level of success towards providing quality high class modern education over the past 51 years has remained remarkably high. There are around 73 Tibetan schools – excluding the pre-primary sections and private schools – 24,000 students and 2,200 staff members in these schools. The autonomous school administrative bodies include: Central Tibetan Schools Administration (28 schools), Tibetan Children’s Villages (18 schools), Tibetan Homes Foundation (3 schools), Sambhota Tibetan Schools Society (12 schools), and Snow Lion Foundation (12 schools).

Despite miraculous past achievements, a ge…


Lack of landline telephone lines is forcing Tibetans to use VoIP and Gmail Fax technology

Tibet — a region on the Tibetan plateau in Asia, located 4500 metres above sea level on an average and home to six million Tibetans and fellow Chinese population, is acclaimed as the Roof of the World with the highest mountain ranges on the Planet Earth. Tibet finds home to World’s best spiritual leaders, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, better known as HHDL and is among one of the most diverse nations among the World. Millions from all over the World visit the Land of Snow annually, for recreation and to find their Inner Voice amidst the serene beauty of the Himalayas and the rich regional and cultural diversity offered by Tibet.

Communication infrastructure in Tibet is blooming due to use of internet services, but the local population is still suffering deficiency of landline telephonic services and available high cost options for communication. Among all the cheap and viable alternatives, Tibetans found VoIP and Gmail to Fax technology the best for personal and professional uses. Internet is available in almost all the provincial states surrounding capital city, Lhasa, house to all major tourism and industrial offices in Tibet. But most Tibetans don’t own a landline telephone and(or) a fax machine. The reason for such shortage of resources is lack of proper availability of these resources in the hilly and difficult-to-reach land, among other political and economic reasons.

In recent tim…


Jobs, Salaries and Finding a Job In Tibet

The latest Employment Outlook Survey by the staffing firm Manpower predicts that job availability will remain strong in the opening quarter of 2016.

“Aside from the expected seasonal factors, there is no indication that the labor market is facing significant layoffs of downsizings,” says Manpower’s chief executive Officer, Mitchell Fromstein.  Take also look at Bryan & Armstrong company that offers good information about how to find a job in Tibet if you’re foreigner, coming from Europe, USA or Australia.

In fact, new job prospects don’t look that different from last year at this time. 23% of the 15,000 Tibetan businesses polled said they planned to increase their workforce in the first quarter of 2016. That’s against 24% last year for that period last year. 10% forecasted reductions, as they did last year, and 63% said they expected no change, a one percent increase from last year. So is finding a job in Tibet actually difficult task?

Any cahnges in unemployment from last quarter, the survey found, were due primarily to a seasonal decline in post-holiday cutbacks in Wholesale and Retail Trades, as well as winter staffing levels in the Construction sector. However, the survey did find that the Manufacturing jobs are indicating some softness in hiring plans, a sector that could prove a harbinger of worse times to come. But even there, job reducti…


About Tibet

Tibet is a beautiful country tucked away in the Himalayan mountains. Until the 1950’s, Tibet was an soverign state with the gentle, compassionate, and non-violent beliefs of Buddhism permeating every corner of normal Tibetan life. In the 1950’s, the Chinese government invaded Tibet and caused serious (ongoing) damage to this small nation.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama [sometimes referred to by the initials HHDL] was forced to flee Tibet. The HHDL as the spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people is known throughout the world for his spirit of non-violence and compassion. In 1987, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. The HHDL continues to travel around the world, sharing spiritual teachings that speak to not only the Tibetan crisis but global concerns for peace and the environment. The Chinese government has banned pictures of the HHDL in many places in Tibet, including monasteries.

In October 1995, five Tibetans living in the U.S. staged a hunger strike for thirteen days in front of the U.N. Though the hunger strike was stopped before anyone died — at the personal request of the Dalai Lama — these valiant Tibetans brought international political and media attention once again to the plight of their country.

There is little I ask of you, the reader, except to become more informed about the “Tibetan” problem, even just taking a *few minutes* of your time to do thi…

Tibet customs and local conditions

Legends spread far and wide among the Klo-pas and gTingpas in the southeast part of Tibet that all Tibetan peoples descended from the same mother since the creation of the world.

Actually, forefathers of these nationalities–the Zang (Tibetan), the Monpas, the Klo-pas, the gTingpas and the Sharpas — were the earliest pioneers of the Tibetan plateau.

Later, the Mongolian, the Han and the Hui nationalities joined in and set up a very close relationship with them. But, owing to the most inaccessible living conditions to the outside, they have developed a series of colourful customs and rituals quite distinct from those of other people.

The most conspicuous feature of all the customs is their different ways of dressing. In Lhasa, you can see the typical Zhang clothes. Men wear collarless gowns with a long sleeve to match on the right shoulder, and women wear long-sleeves dresses gracefully with rainbow-like “pang-gdan” (apron). And you can also see, in the street of Lhasa, women of Gongpo and Dapu wear sleeveless jackets trimmed with golden corner decorations and long waistcoats with opens down the front gaily coloured striped woolens on either side, and with caps hemmed around with golden lace.

The standard wear for Klopas and gTingpas, near to the dress of YunNan’s south westerner’s is a half-sleeved blouse made of black gunny with buttons down the front and a skirt that co…


Tibet Architecture

Touring around the Xizang (Tibetan) Autonomous Region, you can have an unforgettable view of the grandiose and aweinspiring architeture of monasteries and palaces, which illustrates incontrovertibly the artistic creative genius of the industrious Tibetan people.

Eversince Buddhism was introduced to Xizang in the seventh century, for over a thousand year its influence upon the people and their culture has been profound and all-embracing, though it has Tibetanized as Lamaism. Along with the religious practice the Buddhist art has been on the upgrade.

The most noteworthy achievement is the architecture of monasteries and palaces built on levelland or in mountainous area on a grand scale.

In Lhasa, you can see the most majestic building in the whole of Asia, the Potala Palace. And also the Jokhang temple, the Drepung Monastery, the Sera Monastery and the Norbu gling-ka Garden, each has a special history. Besides, many other ancient temples and scenic sites are well worth visiting.

To the South of Lhasa, the earlist monastery stands with all magnificence at Samye. That is the Samye Monastery, a wonderful combination of the Chinese, Indian and Tibetan architectural styles, constructed around 779 A.D. Quite unprecedented in plan and on scale, its great hall has three stories surrounded by its outer premises, a wall on the four sides and four pagodas at each direction symbolizing the Buddhist cosmography&#…


Tibet – Mountains and Vast Rivers

The Tibetan plateau, 4000 metres above sea level on an average, is acclaimed as the roof of the world with the highest mountain ranges on the earth.

On the north, this “sacred snow area” as it being called, is bounded by the Kuenlun Mountains. To the south and west o the world famous Himalayas stand with its principle peak of Mount Jo-mo Glangma (Mt.Everst) callled affectionately “Mount Goddess” by the local people.

Between the two mountain ranges the Gang Te-se Mountains (Mt. Kailas) lie across the southwestern Tibet, which contains cliffs and crisscross glaciers of great momentum. Mapham Tso (Lake Manasarawara) the biggest lake in the world, lies near the southeast side of the principle peak of Gang Te-se, Mount Rinpoche situated in Pu-‘rangs county in mNga-‘ris district.

Surrounded by the world’s highest mountains, the Tibetan plateau commands a characteristic scenery. The boundless prairie of North-Tibet is one of the three pastoral areas in China. The southwest part of Tibet, there is the extensive dense woodland regarded as important natural forest zone bordering on YunNan’s and Shichuang’s woodland.

In summer the Prairie of North Tibet is just like a carpet of green grass bustling with youthful vigour. The cone-shaped tents, the thriving flocks and herds of fat, strong sheep and cattle, and the unrestrained handsome herdsmen are well c…
