THE TIBET CENTER SEPTEMBER 2016 FUND DRIVE

This week The Tibet Center sends out a call to action to ask for your support in helping us reach a goal of raising $15,000 during the month of September to fund much needed repairs and improvements to our facilities. There are holes in parts of our roof and the building has rotted wood in areas and in much need of being treated and painted.

In the next coming weeks we will appeal to you - our student members, sponsors and friends to ask for your support.

The Tibet Center / Kunkhyab Thardo Ling is the oldest operating Tibetan Buddhist Center in New York City and holds lectures, discussion groups, meditations as well as interfaith seminars. Our programs have been free of charge and open to all since 1975.

In the ensuing quarter century The Tibet Center has hosted the most important Tibetan masters of our time including Venerable Kyabje Ling Rinpoche, the Senior Tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Venerable Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Venerable Tsenshab Serkong Rinpoche, who served as the official debating partner of H. H. the Dalai Lama, Sakya Trizin Rinpoche, the hereditary head of the Sakya order of Tibetan Buddhism, Venerable Trulshik Rinpoche of the Nyingma tradition, and Venerable Tenga Rinpoche of the Kagyu tradition. In cooperation with the Gere Foundation, The Tibet Center has hosted His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama to New York City on six occasions.

Currently at The Tibet Center, the Reverend Khyongla Rato Rinpoche and Venerable Khen Rinpoche Nicholas Vreeland offer weekly classes in Buddhist practice and theory. Ancient Indian and Tibetan texts are taught alongside methods in order to integrate them into daily meditation and practice.

The repairs and improvements at our facilities will greatly benefit the continuation of programs The Tibet Center offers. We hope you will join in and that we will meet this goal together.

Please consider giving a tax-deductible contribution.

You may also consider becoming a member of The Tibet Center for $50 a month or $600 per year. 

Thank you for your consideration.

In support of the project, Rinpoche suggested the phrase "Peace Through Loving Kindness" to describe his lifelong vision, and the mission for peace throughout the World for the sake of all sentient beings.

These limited edition pendants strung on cord are available for purchase in solid gold for $800 and in sterling silver for $90. All proceeds from sales of the Peace Through Loving Kindness pendants go towards running The Tibet Center/Kunkhyab Thardo Ling.

THE TIBET CENTER / KUNKHYAB THARDO LING

JasperPic502NRidgewood.jpg

The Tibet Center has completed the purchase of a retreat home in South Orange, New Jersey. The seven bedroom house will be a residence for visiting teachers, and a place to quietly explore one's own practice in a welcome contrast to the urban environment. As one of the oldest Tibetan Buddhist centers in New York City our vision is to enable the spiritual development of all regardless of religious preference.

The house provides a perfect setting for weekend seminars on Buddhism, psychology, science, and other discussions exploring the Buddhist understanding of mental development as it relates to twenty-first century global society. Interested students will be able to access the facility on a daily, weekend, or long-term basis for contemplative practice.  A library will be on site for reading, research, and access to The Tibet Center’s archives. The residence is located in a quiet setting, thirty-five minutes from Penn Station and a short six minute walk from the train station.

We need your financial support to bring our envisioned programs to fruition. Your generous help is essential to benefit our immediate community and broader society. Please consider a tax-deductible donation of any amount toward this worthwhile endeavor.
