International Centers around the World
On a global scale, the number of people from all corners of the world who feel strongly linked to Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling's unique family of high Lamas as well as to the monastery's far-reaching activities continues to grow and flourish. As the international sangha increases by leaps and bounds, more and more retreat centers, Dharma Houses and study programs designed specifically to meet the needs of these students throughout the world have been established in Nepal and elsewhere.
Rangjung Yeshe Institute offers courses in Buddhist philosophy and Tibetan, Sanskrit and Nepali languages. The courses combine traditional Tibetan Buddhist teachings with a modern Buddhist Studies perspective. All classes are held on the premises of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery.
