ผู้สนใจไม่จำเป็นต้องรู้ภาษาทิเบตมาก่อน เราจะเขียนคำศัพท์ง่ายๆแต่เต็มไปด้วยความหมายลึกซึ้ง เช่น ศานติ ความกรุณา ปัญญา รวมทั้งฝึกการเขียนมนตราโบราณ

Calligraphies reflect the beauty of art and peace of mind. Their messages touch on the core of universal human aspirations.

ลายมือที่ถ่ายทอดจากศิลปะนี้แสดงถึงความงามและศานติในใจ เนื้อหาเกี่ยวข้องกับความปรารถนาอันเป็นสากลของมวลมนุษย์
