The 3-level academic title system of Tibetan Buddhism, a system for the cultivation of high-level monks of Tibetan Buddhism and awarding of academic titles, is unified among different religious sects and formed by inheriting the traditional Buddhist sutra study system in Tibetan Buddhism temples and absorbing advanced concepts of modern education. The academic titles of Tibetan Buddhism are divided into primary, middle, and high levels, which are “Chenrampa”, “Chinrampa”, and “Thorampa”. Thorampa is the senior academic title in Tibetan Buddhism, meaning advanced knowledgeable and wise people.

At the 20th anniversary of the establishment and implementation of the 3-level academic title system of Tibetan Buddhism, the journalists visited the Xizang Buddhist College and listened to masters’ stories about the 3-level academic title system of Tibetan Buddhism.
