In order to provide about a hundred monks with a good environment for the pursuit of higher knowledge of Buddhism, Shangpa Rinpoche built Vikrama Shila Buddhist Institute in Nepal to benefit the members of the Sangha community in Pokhara.
The course of studies focuses on the five major texts:
Buddhist Logic (Pramana), Middle Path (Madhyamika), Moral Ethics (Vinaya), Wisdom / Ultimate Knowledge (Prajna Paramita), and (loosely translated) Buddhist Science (Abhi Dharma). The monks are also educated in English, Nepali, and Tibetan and information technology.
