Weekends Focussing on Tibetan Practice Texts


We would like to remind you that the Ka-ter Translation project is organizing online weekends focussing on the most common Tibetan practice texts we use in Dzogchen Community. Shortly we will have 2 weekends (5-6 and 19-20 March)  dedicated to the study of the pronunciation, grammar and word by word translation of the Mandarava practice text.

Timing will be:
Saturday from 10.00-12.30 am and 02.00-04.30 pm and Sunday from 10.00-12.30 am CET.

The weekends are intended for people who have taken a Tibetan Language course for beginners, or have a basic knowledge of reading and grammar of Classical Tibetan Language. Anyway, if you are interest to follow a word by word translation of the practices but you still don’t know tibetan, you can try to follow as a listener reading the Drajyor transcription.
