Sanskrit

Initially Tibetan Buddhism was directly derived from India; our monks are encouraged to study Sanskrit since Buddhist texts presumably have a Sanskrit original. To pronounce tantric words correctly, Sanskrit plays a central role since Buddhist Tantras too are written in Sanskrit. Owing to its essential, in our institute we have started Sanskrit basic course from this year (2018) under the guidance of Acarya Karchung and, we have two classes a day for the BA and MA monks.
