A path to my life
E.S.T., Educational Support Tibet, is a school which seems like my real home. Everything is here. One movement in my life, one operation in my hidden wisdom, one exploration into my being has happened. How wonderful you are! I am whole¬heartedly grateful to you. When the lotus are blooming and spreading fragrance in every direction, the bees gather around it.
E.S.Tibet is a revolution and a change in my lifestyle and it has shaped my life. It, E.S. T., is part of my life. It is a small campus but it is full of wisdom. I love it! Here, we can find every worthy object. We can fly through the atmosphere. We can rocket to the moon and build a beautiful castle and conquer the world. We can create a new world and we understand how to drive our sleepy consciousness. If we have no knowledge, how can we deal with our treasure even if we have housefuls of gold? How should we deal with it? How can we match it with our soul or being? How do we utilize it? Every-thing is in our hand if we could use it in the right way. Life and school are inseparable. School is your life, and your life is school. Human civilization and revolution starts from school. Especially for a refugee, it's really tremendous and unforgettable. I have done nothing for it; but it treats me as a mother cares for her children. I never expected to be taken care of like this. I am really grateful to it.
It has a smaller quantity of students and good facilities compared to other schools which I have attended before. Also, the greatest thing which has happened is that I have got a nice opportunity to associate with different people from different countries. Not only through their teaching, but also, I have a wonderful opportunity to spend time with them and to understand and share the feelings of sadness and happiness with them. In my own life, the school and teachers influence me to be a human who is not only thinking of oneself but, on the contrary, of what I can do for others. I can understand that life is not to be selfish; rather it is ecological which means we have a connection to the plants and living creatures and to their environment. If you are not here, neither am I. If there are no women, there are no men too. We totally depend on our circumstances. So, to be happy on both sides is real life. That is the education which I am learning. An education is not just reading and writing but it is respecting and understanding each other. School is the place to train our hidden wisdom and intelligence.
Once I leave here, only then will I remember how wonderful the time was. Thank you very much to all the teachers and school members for offering me such a tremendous opportunity to gain some knowledge here. As for a hopeless one, you give me resources for my life. It is greater than Mount Everest. God does not come here to Educational Support Trust.
