About the Course

“Giving” is the main practice to enter the spiritual path of compassion. The most beautiful and meaningful is to give Dharma so others can be exposed to a spiritual path; bringing them peaceful mind and attaining happiness.

The Teacher Training Programme is an in-depth study programme for those who want a comprehensive understanding and deep experience of both Sutra and Tantra within the New Kadampa Tradition. Students enroll for the entirety of the programme, which takes several years to complete, are committed to attend the classes, discussions, and retreat sessions of the course. Students are required to take regular written examinations on each topic studied and are expected to memorize essential points from the texts studied.
