Zangdok Palri Institute



The ZANGDOK PALRI INSTITUTE was been founded as a support for the study and practice of Buddhist philosophy.

Courses at the institute will explore Buddhist wisdom and, especially, the very precious tradition Longchen Nyingthik. These courses provide an extremely rare and important opportunity to study and practice the authentic path of self-liberation under the compassionate gaze and wise counsel of authentic teachers.

The Zangdok Palri Institute runs two courses. One will is a non-degree course in general Buddhist studies, and the other is a six-year degree course for Dzogchen practitioners. Both courses are taught at the Annual ZPI Summer Programme, which is held in Europe during the summer months.
