Why start a Tibetan language program in Namo Buddha?

Thrangu RinpocheOver 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.

Announcing the:

Namo Buddha Tibetan Language Program


Summer 2017 Tibetan Language Programs

Six week course in beginning Tibetan

July 1–August 11, 2017


Registration closed for 2017


The Namo Buddha Tibetan Language Program will hold its second year of classes in Tibetan language in the summer of 2017. Founded by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche to help people who want to learn Tibetan to deepen their study and practice of the Dharma or learn more about Tibet and its culture, the Namo Buddha Tibetan Language Program aims to give its students a solid foundation in Tibetan language. In 2017, the program will run for six weeks at the Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery in Namo Buddha, Nepal.


People who take this course level will:

  • Learn to read the Tibetan script confidently and smoothly
  • Learn the basics of Tibetan grammar
  • Gain basic communication skills for daily life and dharma study
  • Gain a strong foundation for further study and dharma practice


The course will be taught by Khenpo David Karma Choephel and a team of monks and nuns from Thrangu Monastery trained in the latest techniques for teaching Tibetan as a second language.


The cost of the course is US $740 for basic accommodations, or $895 for deluxe accommodations in the new guesthouse. Most basic and deluxe accommodations include meals in the monastery dining hall with the sangha. Students will also participate in monastery life at the Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery, located two hours drive from Kathmandu in one of the most sacred and beautiful locations in Nepal.


Though the class is closed for 2017, if you have any questions or would like to receive information in future years, please contact us at
