Dolma Tsedon ( A night long prayer session )


TCV Chauntra Dolma Tsedon
Every year the Cultural Committee of the school organizes some important prayers in the school and one among them is the night long prayer session of the Goddess Tara. Tara, who Tibetans call ‘Dolma’ is commonly thought to be a Bodhisttva or Buddha of compassion and action, a protector who comes to our aid to relieve us of physical, emotional and spiritual suffering.
Tara has 21 major forms, each of which has different color and spiritual attribute. Of these 21 forms, two are especially popular among Tibetan people & White Tara, who is associated with compassion and long life, and Green Tara, who is associated with enlightened activity and abundance.
So here in school we try to impart holistic education to our children. We are not only concerned about the children’s modern education but we also try to connect them spiritually. So this is one particular activity where the prayer starts from 7 p.m. in the evening and lasts till 6 a.m. the next morning in the school hall. The staff and children have 3-5 hours shift to complete the whole session.
The main aims and objectives of holding such prayer is
for long and healthy life of His Holiness the 14th  Dalai Lama
to save and protect ourselves from disease, fear, anxiety, suffering, disasters, troubles and negative karmas.
to overcome mental, physical and emotional blockages and also blockages in relationships.
