Rangjung Yeshe Gomde California and Kathmandu University's Centre for Buddhist Studies at the Rangjung Yeshe Institute are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our intensive Buddhist Studies and Classical Tibetan summer programs.
In Summer 2019 we will offer two programs at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde California in Leggett, California in which students will receive internationally recognized academic credit offered through the Rangjung Yeshe Institute Centre for Buddhist Studies at Kathmandu University.
The two programs run concurrently from June 12th - August 14th:
The Buddhist Studies Summer Program is an academically accredited residential study and practice program that combines traditional and academic approaches to Buddhist Studies. Students in the program live at our remote Northern California center and participate in daily sessions of teaching and meditation led by our Lamas, teachers, and translators.
The Dharmachakra School of Translation offers intermediate-level training in written, classical Tibetan. Our program is open to students with one or more years of formal study of the classical Tibetan language in either an academic or traditional context. This program has drawn students from all major lineages of Tibetan Buddhism and has attracted graduate students from Yale University, the University of Chicago, Emory University, and UC Berkeley.
Both courses are taught by faculty from Kathmandu University's Centre for Buddhist Studies at the Rangjung Yeshe Institute.
Undergraduate and graduate advisors, please pass this information along to your students.
