Please expect that also in the winter term 2021/22, due to the persisting virus crisis, most if not all of the courses offered in the Institut für Indologie und Tibetologie will take place online.
These web pages contain information that is made available by Prof. Dr. Robert J. Zydenbos, professor of Indology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. His website at the Leibniz-Rechenzentrum is http://zydenbos.userweb.mwn.de, where several items among the contents here are linked.
The items of information on these pages are personal communications and recommendations; they are not official statements of the LMU.
Let us remember Samuel Paty (1973-2020)1, a teacher who taught his pupils about freedom of thought and expression2

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).
