Lama David Curtis designed this Introduction to Tibetan Language, Level I, 2nd Edition, with Glossary: A People’s Guide to Classical Tibetan, The Sacred Language of Tibetan Buddhism
as part of a complete course which we strongly recommend for beginners (see the Beginners/Level I Package
). Used with great success by Dharma students from all over the world, this workbook represents a distillation of numerous resources, refined through practical teaching experience to meet the needs of beginning Tibetan students.
Amanda V, LV 1 student says: Learning the Tibetan alphabet and the seven elements [of learning to read a Tibetan syllable] has made my Dharma practice a rich experience. Now when I read Sadhanas with the English translation, my pronunciation has improved. It’s fun--I want to continue learning Tibetan.
