- "Nitartha Institute uniqueness's is the depth to which it makes the genuine buddhadharma accessible to western students, in their own language and cultural context. At Nitartha, study is practice as students learn to see their mind and world with fresh eyes. Prajna, or superior knowledge, is awakened by the investigative contemplations and meditations of vipashyana (clear seeing).
- "Founded in 1996 by The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, under the guidance of Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, the Institute was initiated as a joint undertaking of Nitartha International and Gampo Abbey. Its goal is to transplant intact the teachings of the shedras (monastic colleges) of the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, and to then transform the tradition for Western minds."
