GNH.................................................

Sparkling idea, GNH. Ranging from the humble people till the leader of the humble people, the brilliant idea, GNH is the central aim for their deed. Every individual are sweating in the name of pursuing GNH. I personally believe this marvelous idea would inspire the people of other countries and is inspiring and has been inspired many peoples. For further enhancing the quality of concept, GNH is to have calm, peace and stable mind. The arrogant, selfish, shrewd and dirty mind of people would helpless in enhancing the quality of philosophy, GNH. To obtain the calm, peace and stable mind which can be trusted by Buddha there is no other way than practicing regular meditation with sincerity but the alternative way that wait to obtain that contribute in enhancing the quality of GNH could be practicing Dharma.

When I say practicing Dharma I do not mean that one should enter as a monk and go for meditation in secret place. What I actually want to convince is having the mind of sympathy, empathy and having mind of helping other on top of having self discipline. Having minded of contrivable to GNH makes the vast difference with untrained mind. There is no question of gaining the trained mind (ideal mind) from untrained mind. One could simply attain the mind of trained mind only and only if you are the regular and sincere meditator. On the other hand you are the believer of Buddha. It’s not necessary; you are the follower of Buddha. Whatever you are following but the final aim you are leading to attain trained mind is more than sufficient.

The trained mind of the people is source which will contribute in enhancing the quality of GNH. When you proceed anything think you at least your task contribute to GNH. Talking endlessly about concept of GNH will never realize until you give relevant in GNH enhancing when you proceed anything.

DDC, Dzongkha Development Commission

The program of Dzongkha Development Commission held in College of Science and Technology. March 12, 2013, in morning assembly Director of our college notified the arrival of people of DDC in our campus tomorrow. As scheduled, the honorable deputy director of DDC along with officials of DDC arrived in campus at 2 pass. In fact I was inspired with his talks and educate me, how and why enhancing of national language Dzongkha is relevant these days. Before, DDC director start his vision and mission of tour of DDC in various schools and college he start with differentiating the various ages of world in his perception. The ages dividing into three; the age of wars (the 19th century), the age of idea (toward the ends of 19th century) and the age of peace in 21st century. The age of peace of 21st century demand the relationship among countries and the identity of individual country too. Identity in small way that our country has is the National language. The identity of national language is more important as it represent the existences of our country long time back. As Director mentioned that the researchers specially the one who take blood sample of individual speaking different language and having text on them shows the existence of Bhutan much before China and Tibet. Having this concept, we Bhutanese should appreciate and enhance our national language. But director said that it is sad to learn that most of people are speaking and communicating in other language. For example when he go somewhere he said “Apa ge laptop, toothbrush, Colgate, trowel, (and so on in English) tshuk”. Here only first words Apa ge and last word tshuk is dzongkha and rest are all English. This give an evidence that our national language is vanishing without our notice. Now times have come for every individual to take initiative in promoting national language. Language isn’t the culture and culture cannot be language. Culture should be preserved for future generation. On the other hand, as technology advances the new object place in the way, so the obstacle arises in naming of object in our language. So, director asked every individual to have opinion in giving name of new objects. He covered many topic related to development of national language. In my opinion, we the Bhutanese are responsible for detoriating the national language as we always speak other language. We have seen many leader (head of any institutions, schools, organization and so on) comfortably speaking in English. Hardly have we seen those people speaking in our national language. National language, Dzongkha is our identity and we have right to promote.

The Mind and the body.

Mind and Body. The great people say that the mind is the commander (king) of body and the body is the servant of mind. In fact body always follows what mind decides. Universe knows that the mind is superior to body. So, frequently say think before you do something by most of the people. Losing of consciousness is absent of mind. A street mad man is an example of body with lose mind. He don’t have sense of human as there is no mind, the king to be control his deed that done by his body. He go where ever the legs steps. He has no destination to move. He eats whatever he picks up. He may stay without cloths. The mischievous behavior the mad man act is only because of his mind getting diverges somewhere. But where his mind diverges cannot explain as I am still on way of learning the difference between mind and body.

 I can’t differentiate between mind and body as Buddha did. Body is just another material you can find in this world. Look at the chair in your room, desk and all other stuff, trees, plants, and of course, other's bodies. Try to find the difference between them and your body. Your body is just another material but it is the one connected to your mind. Mind comes as a guest for short period. And the host is the body. They may get separated at any time, when mind losing from body. That difference is that the mind, soul, and spirit were created eternal but the body is only temporary. The body temporarily houses the soul. Mind is the one that we should give care and utilize in our best way.

On the other hand don’t forget that taking care of body after you hear that mind is superior to body. They sometime go in hand to hand and are interrelated. To understand more about the importance between mind and body one has to hear from great people and should have a sincere meditation.

The stability of mind determines the stability of man. Man with stable mind is enlightened. It is the mind that determines the life consequences. In the bottom line, if you really need your mind to be stable, one should have the Buddha mind and be the disciple of Buddha teaching. And be the true disciple of Buddha teaching.

short moment.

Irritating moment. Friends are meant for help not for counting the number of friends for pressure with mind, I have many friends and letting other to know you are sociable. “Friend in need is friend in deed”. Every one of my friend knows that I am no good. I assume my friend thought as I act peculiarly in front of them without any hesitation be it good or bad deed that he or she may hurt. I speak whatever comes in my mouth. The word I speak is the word which come first. There is no priority of words from my mouth which to go first depending on good or bad. Remember this is the habit of childhood days. Now I am no more who I was in childhood days. I am grown up and know what is good and bad. When someone ask someone to help someone, someone turn deaf ear to someone and moment will be irritating to someone

Religion and Science.

Religion and science. “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind”. Analyzing the powerful sentences that has left by learned man “Albert Einstein”, I can say that science and religion is correlate and they should go in hand to hand to have stronger bond and make progress. Science has everything in the sense of practical, observation based on proof and everyone can see the outcome of what science has proof. They have outcome to show to people so that people do agree how science is powerful than religion if someone has conflict between science and religion but we don’t have to differentiate it. "The Goal of Science is understanding lawful relations among natural phenomena whereas Religion is a way of life within a larger framework of meaning." (Ian Barbour, "Religion and Science," pg. 204) " With the statement of relation between science and religion that is, “Science and religion are two windows that people look through, trying to understand the big universe outside, trying to understand why we are here. The two windows give different views, but both look out at the same universe. Both views are one-sided, neither is complete. Both leave out essential features of the real world. And both are worthy of respect." ( Physicist Freeman Dyson) Believe in above statement that spoke by great people who have given more time in analyzing before he say. In the end it may be mentioned that religion is a social phenomenon as well as personal and individual. On the other hand we would be wrong to say that science has made man irreligious or that it is an enemy of morality. Its matter of one’s thinking that makes religion and science a different. I believe that science and religion are the brotherhood to attend the progress of world. Due to my limited vocabulary I am not in position to bring you that science and religion are of no different.

 Man has a body as well as a spirit. Science is concerned only with the body; it can do nothing for the sprit. Science may provide man with physical comforts, but it is religion alone which can give him the courage to struggle against heavy odds. He may even face death itself, with a smiling face. It is religion and religion alone, which can bring the healing balm for his wondered spirit. In this alarming world the learned man especially in science filed have given their efficient support in making the religion more transparent. They have contributed in terms of financial and the words to the world of science to understand that religion is their brother. The conversion of Buddhist text (Kanjur and Tenjur) in English medium is one of the events we can appreciate that religion is going popular.

Electronic and Communication Engineering in Bhutan.

www.google.com
I am second year student pursuing bachelors’ degree in Electronic and Communication Engineering. I am still unknown to program. Unknown in the sense the job availability in the market. As I informed with information of the nation, there is limited job available for E&CE graduate. There are companies and corporations in our nation that support task for E&C graduates. Every year E&C graduate are left behind with no jobs. As many of students of engineer knows, how trough is the course E&C engineer program. But after sweating and suffering for four year, E&C graduates reward with what we called helpless. It is amazing to learn that even literate people don’t know what the E&CE stand for. E&CE stand for Electronic and communication engineering. Electronics engineering, or electronic engineering, is an engineering discipline where non-linear and active electrical components such as electron tubes, and semiconductor devices, especially transistors, diodes and integrated circuits, are utilized to design electronic circuits, devices and systems, typically also including passive electrical components and based on printed circuit boards. The term denotes a broad engineering field that covers important subfields such as analog electronics, digital electronics, consumer electronics, embedded systems and power electronics. Electronics engineering deals with implementation of applications, principles and algorithms developed within many related fields, for example solid-state physics,radio engineering, telecommunications, control systems, signal processing, systems engineering, computer engineering, instrumentation engineering,electric power control, robotics, and many others.

I am still on the way of learning what programs define it. I have interest and unwavering mind of knowing at least tips of ice berg. I do have hope to see myself doing task of my program after I complete it. Definitely, I am going to launch something that related to my program that I undertake. The day will come for me to realize, when the situation that happen to E&C graduate this day but remember I don’t want to realize situation at that time. I have hoped to let the worst situation to get away from my side and let me work over it to get away. One thing what I confuse is that why we the Bhutanese E&CE graduates don’t have privilege to have task in second and third countries? I heard from some senior, senior in a way are the lectures and many exposed people especially expert in E&C fields said that we will get in second and third countries if we have skills. And years pass by I am hoping that the situation will get change in job market and definitely it will in next ten years. haha.
