Background: Many believe that the Nalanda tradition of classical Indian Buddhism represents the highest achievement of the human heart and mind, offering the path to the complete fulfillment of our human potential.
This tradition was extinguished in India in the eleventh century, ending the fifteen hundred years of the flowering of Indian Buddhism. But through the hard work of brilliant teachers and generations of Tibetans who learned from them, the seeds of this unique tradition took root in Tibet.
There in Tibet the treasure of Nalanda Buddhism was preserved and practiced beautifully for a thousand years until the treasury of the dharma was smashed again, in the mid 20th century.
From Tibet, the seeds of authentic Buddhism were scattered once again. Some have taken root here in the Valley, in Jampel Nyingpo Ling.
We invite you to join Geshe Ngawang and growing community of Tibetans and Westerners in this rare and precious opportunity to take in the nourishment of the dharma from this fresh, pure source.
