Buddha’s teachings as contained in the Sutras and Tantras are pure and perfect like ambrosia and they are more precious than the most precious jewels. The supreme expounders of all Buddhist teachings and philosophy are the highly accomplished Siddhas, Acharyas and the Mahapanditas of Nalanda, one of the most ancient Buddhist universities in Aryabumi – the land of Noble beings.

At the request of the Khenpos and teachers, Khenchen Konchok Gyaltsen Rinpoche has graciously agreed to guide and instruct the students. Khenchen Rinpoche is a highly respected, fully acquainted scholar and meditation master. He has studied and practiced the Dharma at a profound level, and we feel very fortunate to have his guidance.
