Separated from the rest of the world by forbidding mountains, Tibet developed a wisdom culture based on a profound investigation into the nature of mind. This wisdom tradition was orally transmitted from teacher to student for over 1200 years.

Tibet’s culture, its distinctive character, and its precious inheritance of wisdom are no longer protected by the mighty Himalayas.


To Rebuild, Preserve, Strengthen, and Perpetuate the Cultural and Spiritual Heritage of Tibet for the Benefit of the Tibetan People and All Humanity.

Beyond the beliefs of any religion, there is the truth of the human spirit. Beyond the power of nations, there is the power of the human heart.

~ Tarthang Rinpoche, Founder

To date, we have donated over 5 million books, 176,250 prayer wheels, and over 4 million sacred art prints.

The widespread distribution of books promotes education in communities across the Himalayas, and is essential for long-term preservation.
