On May 9th, His Holiness inaugurated and consecrated the newly built Gyuto monastery’s classrooms, which are located within the Gyuto Monastery complex. The classrooms are equally usable by both young monks in the first through fifth grade, and Geshes undergoing the complete studies on advanced Buddhism. English and Science will be mandatory subject. Gyuto Monastery’s Khen Rinpoche offered a mandala to His Holiness and served sweet rice and tea. The inauguration ceremony concluded with the famous multi-tonal Gyuto chants.
With the sole aim of enriching them with the traditional education while making sure that they become part of the modernized world, Gyuto School was founded in 2005 to impart both modern and traditional education.
Students learn the same text books used in all other modern schools in India while also studying Tibetan grammar and history. In the morning they memorize the monastic prayers and texts. The Gyuto school is registered under the Karnataka state govt. and runs mainly through donations and sponsorships.
Objective: Class Room project is one of the important projects proposed for undertaking on monastery's commitment to developing further its education curriculum.
This project is primarily intended to provide a classroom facility. For many years we could not provide modern education to those monks who wish to study not only religious as well as modern educations.
