On the 25th day of the 10th month of the Wood Ox Year (December 7, 2023), the Vikramashila Academy was founded with the purpose of supporting translation activities of the glorious Drikung Kagyu tradition. Our aim is to promote the Dharmadhara study and practice program, to recruit, educate and train new translators, and to conduct research and integrate digital solutions.

Our vision is to fully translate all the teachings of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgon, as well as those of his teacher Phagmodrupa and later Drikungpas such as Rinchen Phüntsok, Könchog Trinlé, Tenzin Pemé Gyaltsen and so on.
