Kagyur Reading

TCV Chauntra Ka gyur Reading
As per Buddhist calendar, every fourth month is observed as ‘Saka Dawa’ which began from 26 May 2017. It is one of the most sacred Buddhist festivals in which we celebrate the birth, enlightenment and death of Buddha Shakyamuni. The merits of any good deeds that you perform during this month are considered to be multiplied as one hundred thousand times and vice versa.

The Staff read the scriptures in the school chapel where as the students above class 7 read them in their own respective classes. The main organizer of this event is the school Cultural Committee who shoulders the responsibilities of the refreshment and all.
