Continuing the study of Classical Tibetan grammar. We will focus on grammatical and syntactic connectors, verbs and verbal suffixes, complex sentences. All grammatical elements will be clarified using examples from classical texts and already covered grammar will be explained when encountered. 
This makes the course suitable also for students who just know how to read.

Fridays: 6.30 – 8.30PM
Saturdays and Sundays: 10.30 – 12.30AM and 2.00 – 4.00PM (subject to slight changes)
 
Are you able to read Tibetan and have a basic knowledge of Tibetan grammar? Follow our online guided translation focusing on “The Precious Vase”! 
 
Tibetan language course with excerpts from the Precious Vase 
A 2-hours online meeting every two/three weeks from 5-7pm (Italian time), Tuesday or Wednesday according to circumstances, in which we will focus on some parts of the Tibetan text of “The Precious Vase” by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and of extended excerpts from texts quoted therein. 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!
