Tibet Center Austria’s religious teachings are based on the authentic, unbroken lineage of sutra & tantra passed down through the generations by the great teachers of the Tibetan Buddhist heritage. Our resident teacher is Ven. Lama Geshe Tenzin Dhargye, whose main teacher is His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama—thus, these teachings primarily represent the Gelug school, along with other practices & teachings from the other Tibetan traditions. From time-to-time, TCA also invites special guest teachers that represent various lineages; these vary year-to-year. Please see the schedule below for more details.
Starting 25th April 2018. 2-year-online-course with monthly evening lectures. Can be joined anytime!
