Diamond Cutter Classics
Translation Program


A deep dive into Asian wisdom

Join us: Jan 6th through 19th

Join Geshe Michael Roach and the Diamond Cutter Classics translators for a two week intensive Tibetan translation program.

Three times a year, the Mixed Nuts translation team gather to go through these texts word by word, deepening our understanding not only of the language unique to each philosophical school, but also the profound ideas contained within.

  • Zoom webinars 2 times a day (5 hours a day)
  • Recordings of each class
  • Q&A sessions with each translator
  • Online yoga every day
  • Homeworks and quizzes to learn the material better


Winter 2023: Jan 6th – 19th

Morning Session: 6:00 AM – 8:00 AM Arizona Time

Evening Session: 5:30 PM – 8:30 Arizona Time

After you register, we will send you the login instructions. Please contact us with any questions. Thank you for your support of the translation effort.
