"In 1973, the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche introduced the three-month seminary program as a systematic process of training in the hinayana, mahayana, and vajrayana. He called the program a 'seminary' because his explicit intent was that many of his Western students would teach each other. During his lifetime, the Vidyadhara presided at thirteen of these seminaries. He often commented that he was proud of the seminary format, in that traditional training situations in Tibet had often been study programs alone or practice programs alone . . ."—from the Shambhala Office of Practice and Education
