Sowa Rigpa International College

Located in the sacred Boudhanath region of Kathmandu, the college will help ensure the continuity of this precious medical heritage.


Authentic traditional education

A comprehensive, traditional, 5.5 year program, equivalent to Sowa Rigpa training in India and Tibet.

For the 21st century

Training a new generation of doctors

Ensuring a future for traditional medicine with students from Nepal and around the world.

Health care for all

This college creates a pathway to establish Sowa Rigpa clinics, serving the Himalayan communities in remote regions of Nepal.

My wish is that Tibetan Medicine would spread like the infinite expanse of the sky

in order to benefit all sentient beings.
