Introduction the Nalanda Masters Course

There is a genuine need in the modern world to introduce, in a systematic and comprehensive way, various Buddhist subjects studied and practiced in the tradition of Nalanda and Tibetan monastic universities. Keeping in line with that sophisticated tradition and after the successful completion of the first batch of (in 2017 to 2022),  the second batch of the Nalanda Masters Course (NMC2) is now being offered.

This course being offered 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 the subjects and undertake this journey.  This is a wonderful and rare opportunity to commit oneself to such a course, even while being a layperson. This course is designed specifically to accommodate people who are more seriously interested in Buddhist philosophy, while being in the midst of busy lives in cities and towns, with other engagements and commitments.

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