Demystifying Tibetan for Dharma Students 

Buddhist Victory Banner

 

 

The Dalai Lama has called the Heart Sutra "the essence of the essence of the Dharma."
Now you have the opportunity to study and/or review this beautiful and often-taught text in Tibetan with a very experienced teacher. This is a text which becomes richer with each reading. Our text will aid you in your journey to more fully understand the teachings of the Buddha by reading the Dharma in the original Classical Literary Tibetan.

This is the next step for many of you who have completed Levels II, III, and other reader courses.

He has an academic background in Classical languages and has taught Tibetan and the Dharma to Western students for over 21 years.
