University level Education of the Bon Doctrine
Residential of 3 to 5 year
Students will enroll for either a 3 or 5 year full time, program of study that will run for 11 concurrent months a year. During that time they will live in dormitories on the land in Kotra Kalyanpur, outside of Dehradun, UK, India. They will learn to read and write Tibetan. They should enroll having already begun their Tibetan language studies. Students will have single rooms with their own baths; married students will be able to live on campus in double rooms. Students in the 3 to 5 year program will be housed separately from all other participants to facilitate their focus on the curriculum.
The three main texts to be used in the curriculum will be the Three Cycles of Teachings: The Nine Ways of Bon, Theg Pa Rim Dgu'i Bon; The Mother Tantra, Ma Rgyud; and The Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud, Zhang Zhung Snyan Rgyud. The course of study will include academics, Tibetan yoga, and practice/ meditation retreats. Students of the longer 5 year program will have the same curriculum as the 3 year program, but they will have more time to go to a greater depth into the Three Cycles of Teachings.
