Open up a new perspective on reality by studying Tibetan Buddhist philosophy!
This diploma course is designed for all those who want to study the essence of Buddhist wisdom in a profound way in order to gain an insight into the world of thought of great Buddhist masters such as H. H. Dalai Lama. This insight can be the entrance door to more cheerfulness and inner strength.
The diploma course is as comprehensive as it is compact and covers all aspects: from the basics of Buddhist thinking to depictions of emptiness in the various Buddhist schools.
This diploma course is suitable for you if
- you want to learn how the reality of living beings and objects actually exists from the point of view of Buddhism,
- you are working in the field of adult education or in advisory professions,
- you are a practicing Buddhist – no matter what tradition – and you want to put your practice on a solid foundation.
Anyone is welcome to join! There are no prerequisites. Your teacher will be the Ven. Geshe Tenzin Dhargye, who has taught the course, alongside other experienced and qualified teachers, since 2010. Language of instruction is Tibetan/English with German translation, and German.

Students are now welcome to enroll half-time, with a focus on philosophy (PHIL) or religion (RELI); however, the exam + certificate is only available for full-time students.
Depending on the module, classes are either Attendance Classes or Distant Learning:
- Attendance Classes are conducted at Tibet Center Austria,
located in the peaceful, scenic mountain village of Knappenberg, Austria – directions »
- Distance Learning is provided either by:
– Live, interactive Webinars
– or pre-recorded audio or video
While all classes are available online, we do recommend that you attend the first and last modules in person, if at all possible.
The course starts on 3rd – 4th May 2019 with the first module,
and ends on 8th – 9th May 2020 with the last module.
Attendance Classes are offered during intensive, 2-day weekends,
while Distance Learning modules tend to be series of hour-and-a-half long classes;
you may join the live Webinars or watch the recordings on your own time.
Because all modules are available online, and can be completed through distance study, you may join the course even after it has already started!
Successfully completing the course requires completing homeworks for all 7 modules (which entitles you to a document of participation). You may now enroll half-time if you wish, with a focus on philosophy (PHIL) or religion (RELI).
While the final exam is optional (for full-time students), students who pass will also receive an official certificate, jointly issued by Tibet Center Austria and CUTS.
