School for Tibetan Language and Translation Online Meetings

school tibetan language online meetings

The School for Tibetan Language and Translation is very happy to announce a new online initiative with Prof. Fabian Sanders to deepen our knowledge of the Tibetan language as a means to better understand the Teachings.

Dear all,

Sorry to have been silent for a while. We have been busy organizing more local courses, but now we are very happy to announce a new online initiative to deepen our knowledge of the Tibetan language as a means to better understand the Teachings.
We are planning a 2-hour online meeting every two/three weeks from 5-7pm (Italian time), Tuesday or Wednesday according to circumstances, in which we will focus on some parts of the Tibetan text of “The Precious Vase” by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and of extended excerpts from texts quoted therein. Preparation of the text is suggested. 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 ideal to form an important basic vocabulary of Buddhist terminology.

FIRST MEETING: JANUARY 24, Wednesday 5-7pm CET
