The Advanced curriculum cover a range of subjects, often translated and taught for the first time. Many of these courses are commentaries by great lineage holders covering some of the curriculum of the Foundation and Intermediate levels. These courses allow us to deepen our understanding of the Foundation and Intermediate teachings.
The Advanced curriculum also introduces new courses such as Vajrayana and Shentong Madhyamaka. The Summer Institute has been the main source of these advanced courses until recent times. Due to technological advances, we are now able to teach Advanced courses through live streaming video, allowing students all over the world to participate in Advanced courses outside of the Summer Institute setting.
