Nalanda Monastery is happy to announce the start of the online Basic Program in February 2018. We offer the online students all the study material available to the students of the residential Basic Program at Nalanda. That means that you will have access to the root texts, recordings of the teachings by our resident teacher, Geshe Jamphel Gyaltsen (in English and French), the notes of these teachings, the questions and answers made by us, and background information like charts.

Venerable Legtsok will regularly contact you to see where you are in the studies. In this way we can see whether it is possible for you to study side by side with the resident students or whether we will have to slow down a bit. We are making a blog that will contain all the study material for you to download and there you will find the chat-box as well. The costs of this online course are 60 euros for lay students and 30 euros for the ordained for every four weeks of study material. Are you interested to follow the Basic Program at home? Please contact me by email
