At Nitartha Institute, everyday thought and speech serve as tools for discovering definitive meaning, the unconditioned wisdom and spontaneous compassion of the buddhadharma. Combining an in-depth course of study with training in meditation and analysis, the Institute introduces 21st century students to the complete Tibetan Buddhist science of mind.
Though the focus of our curriculum is the Kagyü/Nyingma understanding of the Dharma, the Institute upholds the importance of non-sectarianism and appreciation of the many forms of Buddhism and thus students of any background are always welcome and encouraged to attend.
Like meditation, the discipline of study is understood to be a practice at Nitartha Institute. Under the guidance of highly trained and experienced Kagyü and Nyingma teachers, participants study, practice, and question what they learn in an atmosphere of generosity, good humor, and gentle yet rigorous analysis. To attend is to experience moments of heart transmission between teacher and student as the latent meaning of the dharma arises in the stream of day-to-day teaching and practice.
