update:August 08,2023

The Tibet College of Buddhism in Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet autonomous region, held a ceremony for 207 of its graduates on July 27.

The ceremony was attended by the college's monks and nuns, as well as officials from the regional government and the Tibet branch of the China Buddhism Association.

The graduates are monks and nuns from regional monasteries who enrolled in 2019 and 2021. They attended religious courses, including various sutra and tantra teachings, as well as other courses such as history, politics, Mandarin and English.

Founded in 2011, the Tibet College of Buddhism has grown into a high-quality comprehensive institution of Tibetan Buddhism, combining modern education with traditional Tibetan monastic teaching.

The college now has 906 students from the 469 monasteries in the region's 74 counties and districts. More than 1,500 students, including 60 Living Buddhas, have graduated from the school.

A nunnery department was launched in 2014 - the first in the history of Tibetan Buddhism - providing nuns with an opportunity to receive a modern education while practicing their religious belief.
