DHARAMSHALA, February 3: A poetry book titled ‘Sem Ki Sawang’ (Secrets of the heart) by Merpa Jamyang Dolma, an India born Tibetan girl, was launched on Wednesday by Geshe Lhakdor, Director of The Library of Tibetan Works & Archives (LTWA) at Ghangchen Kyishong.

“I believe that our Tibetan language is the heart of our existence and we must all work hard to preserve it. With this book, I would like to set an example, especially to the Tibetan youth, who nowadays prefer reading English novels over Tibetan books,” said the 18-year-old author before reciting few of her poems.

Being one of the few female writers born and raised in the Tibetan settlements in India, she said that her initiative is a ‘wake up message’ to the Tibetan youth who had grown up in India, of the importance and the need to study the precious Tibetan language.

“We are all here to appreciate and acknowledge the initiative of a young girl to preserve the Tibetan culture. I congratulate you. However, this is your first step and you still have lots to achieve. So it is important that you continue improving,” said Geshe Lhakdor.

Other Tibetan writers and members of Tibetan Writers Abroad PEN Centre, who attended the event, congratulated her on her new book and encouraged her to continue writing.

The author told Phayul that she now plans to translate her book into English, which will have a wider reach globally. And with 500 books published in its first edition, she thanked her parents for helping her financially to make the book a reality.

Currently studying at College of Higher Tibetan Studies, Sarah. Jamyang Dolma, developed keenness towards Tibetan literature, reading and writing poems from her school days. She attended CST CVP School Bylakuppe till 10th standard and then to CST Bylakuppe for her Senior Secondary.

Last May, she had the privilege of presenting one of her Dalai Lama-dedicated poem before His Holiness’s presence at Upper TCV School. Her poem was well received by the Tibetan spiritual leader who also congratulated her.
