C3 Dzogchen text by Longchenpa
The texts will be taught as a three-year rolling programme and students will sit 1st and 2nd triennium exams after 3 and 6 years of study respectively. The three triennia will be taught in parallel, consequently students joining the shedra at any give year will attend whichever 1st triennium class is being taught on that year and complete the complement before beginning the second triennium.
Following Khen Rinpoche Namdrol’s advice, the two Sutra Studies Triennia are not prerequisites for the Tantra Studies Triennium, which can be attended as a stand alone module.
