Introduction - Nalanda Masters Course


There is a growing number of Indian and international participants at Tibet House who are showing a keen interest to delve deeper into various Buddhist subjects studied and practiced in the tradition of Nalanda and Tibetan monastic universities. Keeping them in mind, a new Masters Course is being offered which is in line with that sophisticated tradition.

This Masters Course is not a substitute for a formal degree course from a registered university. Rather, this course is being offered to participant practitioners, who wish to further their knowledge of various Buddhist subjects, in order to deepen their understanding and apply them to their Dharma practice.

The study and knowledge of Buddhism is extremely vast and profound. In the monastic tradition, it routinely takes a few decades to properly study all subjects and undertake this journey.  This is a wonderful and rare opportunity to commit oneself to such a course, even while being a layperson. Since there are number of people who are more seriously interested in Buddhist philosophy and at the same time in the midst of busy lives in cities, with other engagements and commitments, this course is designed specifically to accommodate them.

This being a pilot programme, limitations are bound to be there. Tibet House requests the understanding and co-operation of all participants.
