The following message appears in the latest news bulletin of the Deer Park Institute:

Tibetan Translator Training Program

Starting from June 2011

Recognising the immense benefits of translating words of Buddha and Indian panditas which is preserved in classical Tibetan language and Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Deer Park will initiate the institute’s first Tibetan Translation Program in the summer of 2011.

The aim of the program is to produce 10-15 classical Tibetan-English fluent junior translators capable of translating texts within the Kangyur and Tengyur.

This four-year program will have native Tibetan teachers, part time lamas and khenpos, and visiting translator scholars.

All applicants will go through a strict screening process to ensure that they have a rudimentary understanding of Tibetan and that they are committed to becoming a translator. This process will create a committed group of students that progress together through each level of the program.

Please circulate this information to friends you know who have passion in becoming Lotsawa! Scholarships are available.

  1. Tashi Delek,

    My name is Dolma Tsering and i am 24yrs old. I currently reside in Toronto, Canada. I am working full time at the moment and pursuing my CGA designation on the side. I have a desire in becoming an oral translator, capable enough to serve as an interpreter for a Tibetan teacher giving basic Buddhist teachings in the west. I can speak and write tibetan. I did my high school in tibetan school, India and post secondary in Toronto, Canada.

    I would like to know what the minimum requirements are for the admission.

    I deeply thank you and appreciate it if you could advise me on it. I look forward to hear from you.

    Sincerely yours,

    Dolma Tsering
