Closing Puja of the FMPT Masters Program’s lessons

On Friday, 18th of June 2021, there was the Closing Puja, in the Meditation hall, of the third FPMT Masters Program in Buddhist studies of sutra and tantra, which began in March 2015 at the Lama Tsong Khapa Institute; the next step for the students, after a two-month summer break, will be the Review and Final Exam, that will take place in September.

The ceremony was an opportunity to present an offer and a message of thanks to the Ven. Geshe Gelek, teacher of the FPMT Masters Program, to the institute staff and all those who participate in maintaining the excellent quality of advanced programs of Buddhist philosophy and psychology.

The FPMT Masters Program in Buddhist Studies of Sutra and Tantra is the unique vision of Lama Thubten Yeshe, first implemented and developed into the current curriculum by Geshe Jampa Gyatso. As a full-time study program with integrated practice and training components, it aims at providing serious students of Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition greater depth of study and trains qualified teachers of Buddhist theory and practice.

Its mission is to provide full-time in-depth education for students of the Tibetan Mahayana tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa with emphasis on the integration of academic, practice, behaviour, service and training components. In addition to offering students a profound deepening of their Dharma understanding and practice, the Masters Program aims at providing the FPMT with highly qualified Western teachers of Buddhist theory and practice. It is an intensive training course in Mahayana Buddhist philosophy, an in-depth study and practice program to learn the philosophy of the Middle Way according to the tradition of studying the classical texts of the great monasteries.

We send our best wishes to residential and online students for a successful study.

The next edition of the MASTERS PROGRAM will start in January 2023 until 2028.
