He completed the two following Kopan November courses in Kathmandu, Nepal and joined the seven-year Masters Program in Advanced Buddhist Studies of Sutra and Tantra at the Lama Tzong Khapa Institute (Pomaia, Italy). He graduated from the Masters Program in 2004 and completed his studies with an eight-month retreat at Oseling Center in Spain.
