Dzogchen Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche has founded the Zangdok Palri Institute as a support for the study and practice of Buddhist philosophy.

Courses at the institute will explore Buddhist wisdom and, especially, the very precious tradition of the Longchen Nyingthik.

These courses will provide Western students with an extremely rare and important opportunity to study and practice the authentic path of self-liberation gradually, from the basics up to the highest teachings, under the compassionate gaze and wise counsel of authentic teachers.

The Zangdok Palri Institute runs two courses.

Both courses are taught at the Annual ZPI, which is held in Europe during the summer months, or exceptionally, when the conditions permit to do so, in Tibet.
