Registration To Attend the Teachings

More information will be posted here in late March 2015.  Sign up here to receive automatic updates by email.

All attendees are required to complete three steps:

  1. All foreigners must apply for a Protected Area Permit (PAP) from the Government of India (application deadline date to be announced).  Details are available on the Protected Area Permit page. IMPORTANT: Foreigners who do not have a PAP may not be permitted by the Government of India to attend the teachings.
  2. All attendees must complete the Website Registration Form (please see Step Two below).
  3. All attendees must register in person at the teaching location for an entrance pass (please see Step Three below)

Without completing all of these steps, you may not be issued a security entrance pass to attend the teachings. Thank you for your careful attention to these important details.


Step One: PAP Application Form

Please see the Protected Area Permit page for the PAP application form and instructions which MUST be completed by ALL foreigners, including those with accommodation outside of the Tibetan Settlement.  There will be a PAP application deadline date which will be announced once the next teaching dates are confirmed.

Foreigners without a PAP may not be permitted by the Government of India to enter the Tibetan Settlement or attend the teachings, even if your accommodation is not within the Tibetan Settlement.  Indian citizens and Tibetan R.C. holders are not required to have a PAP to visit a Tibetan Settlement unless they have a foreign passport.

Step Two: Website Registration

The Website Registration Form will be posted here in late March 2015.

Once the Website Registration Form has been posted here, all attendees are requested to complete the Website Registration Form as soon as possible – please do not wait until you receive your PAP or Indian visa to complete this form.  Advance registration will ensure sufficient amounts of seating, materials, food, etc for all attendees.

Step Three: In-Person Entrance Pass Registration

No one will be permitted to enter the teaching venue without an entrance pass. In order to make this pass, all attendees must register in person in the Tibetan Settlement.

This is all of the information we currently have about the In-Person Entrance Pass Registration.  Further details will be posted here as soon as they are confirmed, which is usually one month or less before the teachings begin.
