L for Lopon or Legjarwa or legshepa (Dzongkha language teacher/lecturer/professor)

WHAT CAN I BECOMELanguage, technically, is the best method of human communication, be it spoken or written.  It’s perhaps too the best mode of “self expression”. For a country, with its national language as Dzongkha, having a good grasp of it will take you far and wide.  Which means, if you are a person teaching it, you are teaching them a whole lot? By learning all those Buddhist philosophy and Dzongkha language you become a good human being where you are taught the Buddhist precepts and human values like Ten Virtue, boddhicitta and etc. Learning  

Who can become a Lopon?
-Someone with good knowledge and command over language, of course.  But, being bilingual,        English preferred as the other language, is an added bonus
-To impart the knowledge, one should enjoy teaching and have interest in the field
-Patience and dedication, qualities one should possess while embracing the teaching career
-A minimum qualification of Class XII is required to get enrolled in one of the …

Do Not Hurt Yourself

One night a snake while it was looking for food entered a carpenter’s workshop.

The carpenter, who was a rather untidy man, had left several of his tools lying on the floor. One of them was a saw.

As the snake went round and round the shop, he climbed over the saw, which gave him a little cut.

At once, thinking that the saw was attacking him, he turned around and bit it so hard that his mouth started to bleed.

This made him very angry. He attacked again and again until the saw was covered with blood and seemed to be dead.

Dying from his own wounds, the snake decided to give one last hard bite then turned away. The next morning the carpenter was surprised to find a dead snake on his doorstep.

Lesson to Learn: Sometimes in trying to hurt others, we only hurt ourselves.

Negative People Think Negative

There was a hunter who bought a bird dog, the only one of its kind in the world that could walk on water. He couldn't believe his eyes when he saw this miracle.
At the same time, he was very pleased that he could show off his new acquisition to his friends. He invited a friend to go duck hunting.
After some time, they shot a few ducks and the man ordered his dog to run and fetch the birds. All day-long, the dog ran on water and kept fetching the birds. The owner was expecting a comment or a compliment about his amazing dog, but never got one.
As they were returning home, he asked his friend if he had noticed anything unusual about his dog.
The friend replied, "Yes, in fact, I did notice something unusual. Your dog can't swim."
Some people always look at negative side.
