Current Advice

Help at the Time of Death

“I tell people that the FPMT organization is here to help. I think it is so fortunate that we, the FPMT, are able to provide help at the time of death, because death is really a most difficult, most hard time. So the benefits provided by the organization to help at that time are so good. It’s very good to do, it helps people in the world very much, and especially students. In the world, especially in Western countries, I don’t think there are other organizations who put together all the ways to help with death, to help people who are dying.

Of course those who have realizations, who have good heart, they don’t go to the lower realms, they have happy mind, they know where they’re going. But for most people there’s only suffering.

If you are able to help the person dying, not only to save the person from the lower realms, but also help the rest of the living family, it’s big, it makes them so happy. Wow! Somebody able to help.”

Excerpted from Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s comments about FPMT’s Prayers for the Dead service, made while Rinpoche was visiting FPMT International Office, Portland, USA, in April 2014

What is the Foundation for the
Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition?

The FPMT is an organization devoted to preserving and spreading Mahayana Buddhism worldwide by creating opportunities to listen, reflect, meditate, practice and actualize the unmistaken teachings of the Buddha and based on that experience spreading the Dharma to sentient beings. We provide integrated education through which people’s minds and hearts can be transformed into their highest potential for the benefit of others, inspired by an attitude of universal responsibility and service. We are committed to creating harmonious environments and helping all beings develop their full potential of infinite wisdom and compassion. Our organization is based on the Buddhist tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa of Tibet as taught to us by our founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe and our spiritual director, Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche.

Die Stiftung zur Erhaltung der Mahayana-Tradition hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, diese buddhistische Tradition und ihre Werte weltweit zugänglich zu machen. Unsere Organisation bietet Unterweisungen des tibetischen Buddhismus, Meditation, soziale Dienstleistungen, Klausurzentren und Projekte, die dazu beitragen, diese Tradition zu erhalten. Sie hat ihre Grundlage in der Gelugpa-Überlieferung der Lehren des tibetischen Meisters Tsongkhapa, die wir in Form der Unterweisungen von Lama Yesche, des Gründers dieser Organisation, und unseres spirituellen Leiters Lama Zopa Rinpotsche weitergeben.

Im Folgenden finden Sie eine Liste von Zentren und deren Website in Ihrer bevorzugten Sprache.

La Fundación para la preservación de la tradición Mahayana (FPMT) se dedica a la transmisión de la tradición y valores budistas mahayana en todo el mundo a través de enseñanzas de budismo tibetano, meditación, servicio a la comunidad, centros de retiro y proyectos que preservan la tradición. La FPMT está basada en la tradición guelugpa de Lama Tsong Khapa del Tíbet, tal como nos han enseñado nuestro fundador, Lama Thubten Yeshe, y nuestro director espiritual, Lama Zopa Rimpoché.
