School for Tibetan Language and Translation Online

Do you wish to study Tibetan Dharma language online?

Join us! We will soon start a new cycle of lessons and guided translation focusing on selected excerpts from the “The Precious Vase” by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.The ‘Precious Vase’ is an ideal text for the study of Tibetan language. It features numerous quotes from a variety of classical texts linked by passages in modern literary Tibetan. The topics discussed are crucial in forming a fundamental basic vocabulary of buddhist terminology.

The Guided Translation of selected excerpts from the Precious Vase is an online course for all levels of students of Tibetan LanguageStudents need to be able to read Tibetan and must have basic knowledge of Tibetan grammar.

We will have a 2-hours online meeting from 5-7pm (Italian Time) every two weeks. 

Our instructor, Fabian Sanders, will initially guide the translation for participants in order to show how it works. In the remaining time those of you who are interested may read a passage each, and then we will discuss and reach an understanding of the text from all points of view.

The first meeting, on September 17th, is a trial class open to everyone!
