A 2-hours online meeting every two/three weeks from 5-7pm (Italian time) in which we will focus on some parts of the Tibetan text of "The Precious Vase" by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.

The ‘Precious Vase’ is an ideal text for the study of Tibetan language. It features numerous quotes from a variety of classical texts linked by passages in modern literary Tibetan. The topics discussed are ideal to form an important basic vocabulary of buddhist terminology.

Next excerpt will be about the importance of examining the Master

The first meeting, on January 15th, will be free and open to everyone!
