Ngagyur Nyingma Institute
Ngagyur Nyingma Institute, Buddhist College (Shedra)

The establishment of theNgagyur Nyingma Institute (Shedra) (Higher Buddhist Studies and Research Center) is one project of which particularly pleases His Holiness. Officially opened in 1978, it currently houses over five hundred monks who are studying the Buddhist sutras and tantras in depth. Each year students of outstanding scholarship and wisdom graduate after completing their nine-year course. The standard of training they receive is extremely high and those graduates who are selected to become Khenpos are then sent to teach in different Nyingmapa monasteries and centers.

The faculty of the Institute includes Khenchen Pema Sherab, Khenchen Namdrol, Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso and a team of more newly-appointed Khenpos and Lopons. They all work tirelessly, with a pure motivation and no thought for fame or material gain to keep the lamp of Dharma burning. Khenpos of outstanding wisdom and realization, like Dzogchen Khenpo Tsondru, Khenpo Dazer, Khenpo Rinchen, Khenpo Rigzin and Khenpo Tseten, have helped enormously to shape the Institute into its present form. Khenpo Jigme Phunstog Rinpoche and Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche have been visiting professors and the Institute was greatly enriched by their precious presence and enlightening teachings. Recently, research scholars worldwide have begun to come to theNgagyur Nyingma Institute (Shedra) to study under its team of learned Khenpos.

It is possible to enter into intensive study at the Palyul Monastery without becoming a monk or nun. However, only those with monastic vows can complete the full course of 9 years undergraduate training and 3 years Ph.D. training. There is no fee for ordained, however it is very helpful if a sponsor can be found. There is a parallel women's shedra. For more information, click to read detailed information about the program.
