Ani Deki Dolkar

Ani Deki Dolkar says that of all the things she likes about Tek Chok Ling, the best is Khenpo Rinpoche, because he’s very good and everything they learn comes from him. Ani Deki is twelve years old and has been at the nunnery since she was eight. She comes from a farming family in Dolpo, Nepal, where she has one brother and one sister. She received some education there, but like so many Nepali children, particularly girls, mostly had to do chores like collecting firewood instead of going to school. Her parents brought her to Tek Chok Ling so that she could receive a good education and help herself in the future. She likes learning pujas and English, and enjoys singing, dancing, and drawing sacred images.
