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 Gesellschaft zur Erhaltung der Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) ist eine weltweite Organisation, die sich der Verbreitung des Mahayana-Buddhismus widmet. Sie schafft Voraussetzungen, damit Menschen die fehlerlosen Unterweisungen des Buddha hören, über sie nachdenken und meditieren, sie praktizieren und verwirklichen können; auf der Basis dieser Erfahrungen trägt sie zur Verbreitung des Dharma unter den fühlenden Wesen bei.

Inspiriert von einer inneren Haltung der universellen Verantwortung und des Dienstes am Nächsten bietet sie ganzheitliche Bildung an, durch die Geist und Herz der Menschen in ihr höchstes Potenzial verwandelt werden können, zum Wohle der anderen. Sie strebt die Entwicklung friedvoller Gemeinschaften an und möchte allen Wesen helfen, ihr Potenzial für grenzenlose Weisheit und grenzenloses Mitgefühl zu verwirklichen. Unsere Organisation basiert auf der buddhistischen Überlieferungslinie des Lama Tsongkhapa aus Tibet, wie sie von unserem Gründer Lama Thubten Yeshe, und unserem spirituellen Leiter, Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, gelehrt wird.

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.
