We in Tashi Lhunpo Monastery maintain our efforts to preserve the unique Tibetan Buddhist culture which flourished for six centuries in Tibet.  From our monastery, re-established in India by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, we are now able to share with a wider world community the teaching and traditions of our monastery by travelling abroad and making new friends.

We continue to work in exile as a community to promote the study of Buddhist Philosophy, cleansed of all stains of unawareness and wrong understanding.

We thank you for your generosity and support for Tashi Lhunpo Monastery during this difficult period for the Tibetan people.
