The Institute of Advanced Buddhist Studies at Mindrolling
The profound teachings of the Buddha say that ultimate happiness is achieved through the unsurpassable Enlightenment. To this end, advanced Buddhist studies is deemed necessary for the preservation of the precious living lineage and spread of the vast and profound Buddha Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings. All relative and ultimate happiness of sentient beings results through the understanding of the interdependency of cause and effect, and from the cultivation of virtuous and abandonment of non-virtuous actions.
To preserve the unbroken lineage of teachings and pass them on to the next generation of practitioners, Ngagyur Nyingma College (Five Sciences University) was established. It is now one of the largest Buddhist Institutes in existence.
Monks of Ngagyur Nyingma College study and practice the teachings of Buddha in accordance with the living lineage of Omniscient Rongzom Pandita, Omniscient Longchenpa, the Vidyadhara Rigzin Terdak Lingpa, Lochen Dharmashri and Jamgom Mipham Rinpoche.
