Rangjung Yeshe Institute
Founded by Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche as an institution of higher learning for those wishing to deepen their understanding of Buddhist philosophy and practice
The courses offered at Rangjung Yeshe Institute include a wide variety of topics in Buddhist Philosophy and in Tibetan, Sanskrit and Nepali languages. Students who are seeking a thorough education in Buddhist Philosophy and Himalayan languages may enroll in formal degree programs at BA, MA and PhD levels or take advantage of specialized non-degree courses including our renowned summer intensive short courses and year-long translator training program.
"Listen to the Buddha's teaching and you become pure, serene and gentle.
Contemplate and you gain confidence in liberation. Meditate and you discover your inner natural wisdom. Therefore, strive hard to listen, contemplate and meditate!"
-Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche
