The parents and teachers of the students at the Ilztal elementary school in Styria raised and donated an incredible € 1,800 to the Saldang winter school in a fundraiser.
The campaign was initiated by the head of the school, Elisabeth Lang-Leber. We would like to thank the parents very much for the extraordinary generosity, but also a big thank you to the students and the teaching staff.
In summer 2019 we visited the school in Austria together with Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche. There were two lectures and an intensive exchange with the students of the elementary school with a small film contribution to the school in Saldang and the way to the Upper Dolpo. Afterwards, the students were allowed to ask Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche some questions, which he answered with great patience. The children were particularly interested in life in the mountain villages. There was also a little laughing yoga exercise that the children really enjoyed.
At the end, Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche gave the children some advice:
- Always be grateful to your parents, they have done a lot for you
- Be grateful that you can go to such a nice school
- Be grateful to your L honor
The children were very impressed and enthusiastic about the morning and took new impulses home with them.
