2017 Summer Courses Shedra Schedule of Classes

Nitartha Institute courses are taught in accord with the 5 Sciences taught at the historical Nālandā University of India. This summer we offer courses in two of these subject areas: the Science of Mind and the Science of Creative Arts. To register, first you will choose one of these areas, or “tracks,” in which to focus your studies. When you have registered for a course of study within that track, you will review the available classes, and select the ones you wish to take.
