We are very happy to announce a new Study Cycle

taught by Dzogchen Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche, with the assistance of Lopön Tsering Gönpo and Lopön Jampa Norgyal.

Launched in 2005, this program is an excellent way to understand the “Nine Vehicles”, a gradual approach to the teachings of the Buddha. At the end of the study cycle, students are ready to receive instructions on the Great Perfection, the pinnacle of all vehicles.

This intense study course takes place over a week or two in Dharma City, Rinpoche’s study and retreat centre in Belgium. During the year, students memorise and reflect on the discussed texts at home, with the help of study groups they set up with other students. At the beginning of the following study course (usually the following year), a written and oral exam is held to help students assess their knowledge.
