Join us for the 2021 Online Summer Institute!

July 2 – July 30, 2021

We look forward to another summer of study and practice with Nitartha’s exceptional faculty. The Summer Institute is a one-month program divided into three sessions. Join us for one, two, or all three sessions!


  • Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche is scheduled to teach daily during sessions 1 and 2 on the Sandhinirmocana Sutra —The Sutra Unraveling the Intention (of the Buddha). This is a crucial sutra for the Yogacara tradition of the third Turning of the Wheel of dharma. It is the classic source from the Buddha’s teachings for unraveling his intent behind teaching three different Turnings of the Wheel, as well as for his teachings on the eight consciousnesses, three natures, the ultimate, and the path of meditation that leads to nondual realization of the ultimate.
  • Acharya Lama Tenpa Gyaltsen will lead Mahamudra shamatha practice sessions for those with prior Mahamudra Shamatha experience and community meditation for all students enrolled in the Summer Institute.
  • Four levels of study (shedra) will be taught over the entire month.
  • And Tibetan language courses will be offered.

Cost: All of this for $450 for two sessions or $250 for one session.
