Please expect that also in the summer term 2022, due to the persisting virus crisis, most of the courses offered in the Institut für Indologie und Tibetologie will take place online.

The word убийца means ‘murderer’. He and his friends must be stopped.

Please note: there are also decent and brave Russians, like Marina Ovsyannikova1.


General remarks about Indology

General questions from students about Indology will not be answered, if the reader has not at least read this text2 about the subject. Very recommendable is the article (in German) by Prof. Dr. Roland Steiner, Indologie?.

– A small sample of the languages at our institute: what they look like

The languages on this sign can all be learnt at our institute: from top to bottom Kannada, Hindi, Tibetan (except for English: the university has a separate department of English for that). Besides these, also Sanskrit and Urdu are taught at our institute. The sign stands in Karnataka at the side of the highway from Mysore to Madikeri, at the corner where a sideroad leads south towards Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement in India.

After you have spent a while at our institute, you too will be able to read all that (photograph © R.J. Zydenbos, 2013).
