The School for Tibetan Language and Translation is 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-hours 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. 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
Requirement: The students need to be able to read Tibetan and must have basic knowledge of Tibetan grammar. The working language is English.
