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.
