Sowa Rigpa International College
सोवा रिग्पा इन्टरनेशनल कलेज
Sowa Rigpa International College is the first institution in Nepal to offer a degree program in Sowa Rigpa – the Science of Traditional Himalayan & Tibetan Medicine, as an affiliate of Lumbini Buddhist University. Located in the sacred Boudhanath region of Kathmandu, the college will help ensure the continuity of this precious medical heritage through education and research.
My wish is that Sowa Rigpa will spread like the infinite expanse of the sky in order to benefit all sentient beings.
