About the International Buddhist Academy

The International Buddhist Academy (IBA) was established in 2001 by the late Khenchen Appey Rinpoche, an eminent Sakyapa scholar and teacher, whose students include luminaries such as His Holiness the Sakya Trizin, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and Sogyal Rinpoche.

In addition to providing teachings on the Buddha Dharma, the Academy runs a successful and innovative Monastic Leaders Programme to empower promising monastic scholars to become effective leaders, teachers and translators.

IBA is actively engaged in the translating, publishing and dissemination of rare and important Dharma texts and is also involved in the 84,000 Project.
