Vidya Dharma Project 2011: Interview with Rinchen Khando
This interview with Rinchen Khando took place as part of a journey to India in April of 2011 called the Vidya Dharma Project. Fifteen twelfth grade students from the Mount Madonna School “Values in World Thought” program participated as part of a year long project. Vidya Dharma translates roughly as “Path of Knowledge.” The journey then was to discover both self-knowledge and knowledge of another culture.
Rinchen Khando Choegyal is the founder and director of the Tibetan Nuns Project, a former Minister of Education in the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, founding President of the Tibetan Women’s Association, and sister-in-law of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. She resides in Dharamsala, India.
