  • Registration: ₹100 (one time)
  • Buddhist Philosophy: ₹400 per month for one class
  • Language Course: ₹600 per month for one class


A limited number of semi-furnished rooms with attached kitchen and either attached or common bathrooms with hot water are available for research scholars and students enrolled in two or more courses. No advance bookings are accepted. Rooms are rented to students only on arrival and after registration. If no rooms are available at the time of arrival, the student’s name will be placed on a waiting list.

Research scholars are those scholars who come with a letter of recommendation from their university or institution and who need to use the books, manuscripts, and other facilities available at the LTWA during their research period. Research scholars are required to subscribe to the library membership. The individual membership fee is `300 per month, the annual membership fee for institutions is `1,500 and `100 per month for general readers.
