Over the years, many people have asked Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche whether they could learn Tibetan in Namo Buddha, but up until now he has not had any program available and has always had to tell them to study elsewhere. For this reason, he has established this program so that students may learn Tibetan in the peaceful atmosphere of Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery in Namo Buddha.
