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 variety of topics in Buddhist Philosophy, History, and Cultural Studies, 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 RYI’s Certificate Course in Buddhist Studies. Several specialized non-degree courses are also available including RYI’s eight-week long summer intensives, online learning courses, and a 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
