How Can You Help?

No sentient being wants to experience pain and suffering. Unfortunately, billions of animals are killed for human consumption, used as live bait or food for other animals, and killed for their skins and fur, among many other terrible fates. Liberating animals from death or harm, and then blessing them with holy objects and prayers, is a way to help alleviate their suffering, extend their precious life, and create the cause for their good rebirth. more…

For many centuries, Tibetan Buddhists have offered long life pujas to their teachers. The long life puja purifies the relationship between teacher and disciple, and creates the karmic cause for the teacher to remain among us. FPMT is extremely fortunate in being able to offer long life pujas every year to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Now we invite individuals to join in this special opportunity. more…
Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche) is perhaps the most universally cherished realized being in all of Tibetan Buddhism.

The Padmasambhava Project for Peace is dedicated to fulfilling Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s goal of building many large statues of Padmasambhava around the world in order to create the cause for peace for all beings. more…
When one receives an oral transmission (lung) or initiation from a qualified Buddhist master, one is receiving the teachings of the Buddha in their original form, passed perfectly from master to student through generations in an unbroken continuum. The Preserving the Lineage Fund provides the means through which the Mahayana teachings can be transmitted from Tibetan lamas to their students by sponsoring initiations and oral transmissions which Lama Zopa Rinpoche has identified as essential for the preservation of the Dharma. more…

Statements of Appreciation
No words can really completely capture the joyous feelings in my heart when I think of how Rinpoche and FPMT has benefited so many thousands of people these past twenty, thirty years. I have tried several times but each time I am so overwhelmed with the things I want to convey that I just get so choked up. Rinpoche is indescribable – so pure, so patient, so humble and so so wise… and it is really incredible the way everyone at FPMT is constantly supporting and helping Rinpoche in his untiring quest to bring Dharma to so many thousands of us at every level along the path. I am so humbled by Rinpoche’s vast wisdom and patience and so inspired by so much effort being put in by my Dharma brothers and sisters in FPMT all working with the unwavering goal of planting seeds, making Dharma accessible, teaching, sharing, inspiring, reaching out, giving a shoulder, and showing the way to attaining the peerless enlightenment and always benefiting others. It is just so blissful knowing I am a small part of Rinpoche’s great mandala. Thank you everyone … and most of all thank you to Rinpoche for opening my eyes and my mind to the true meaning and purpose of my life.
