Buddhist studies in Kathmandu


Dear readers,

I have had several requests about what Buddhist studies are available in Nepal, here is the result of my research:

(Kagyu lineage)
The center offers BA and MA and is recognized by Kathmandu University (www.ku.edu.np).
The course take place in the Rangjung Yeshe Institute  (www.shedra.org). 
Where: in the Bouddhanath area of Kathmandu, a very lively Tibetan community

(Sakya lineage)
Several "one month" options from May to September
Where: Bouddhanath area

(Dzogchen, Nyingma lineage)

They have a 3 month winter-spring program (already full for 2013!)
Where: In Pharping, a small village a few miles west of Kathmandu

(Gelup lineage)
Many option but the most popular is the one month Lam Rim course in November each year. 
Where: A few miles north of Bouddhanath

(Kagyu Lineage)
A very popular 2 month program from Jan 7 to March 7 but also a 5 year philosophy program for the more advanced students!
Where: In Tinchuli, a few minutes walk East of Bouddhanath

(Nyingma lineage)
A 9 year program (MA and PhD equivalent), for serious students!
Where: In Bouddhanath area

Let's turn the Wheel of Dharma!
With Love and Light
