Our commitment to keep Tibetan Buddhism alive
The Buddha Maitreya Project contains four major projects at the moment and they are focused on the education and the development of Tibetan culture and its conservation, which are also the main priorities of the Ganden Monastery.
The great Monastic University of Ganden includes two monasteries, Gaden Jangtse and Gaden Shartse. Both Abbots, who are also the Rectors of the respective Universities are directly elected by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
Pneuma Institute, through the work of the International Director Juan Ruiz Naupari, has collaborated for more than 25 years with Tibetan monasteries with the purpose of helping preserve and keep alive Tibetan Buddhism, a cultural and spiritual tradition that is still genuine, maintaining its original practices and rituals.
Help us keep Tibetan Buddhism alive by making a donation.
Current Projects that we Love and Support
In December of 2019 an historic event will take place at the Gaden Monastery in India. The Tsongkhapa Commemoration is the 600th year anniversary of the ascension to Parinirvana of the Great Lama Tsongkhapa, the creator of the Geluk lineage.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama will preside over this magnificent commemoration and you’re invited!
SPONSOR A CHILD'S EDUCATION
The monks survive with donations for food and clothing and with sponsorships for their education.
Each monk needs $150 a year for his own upkeep and for the purchase of study materials, school supplies and books.
You may choose to be part of the monthly membership to sponsor a child for $15 a month.
The ancestral practices of Tibetan Medicine constitute a unique branch within the health sciences.
We feel that its disappearance would be a loss for humanity, so we host Tibetan Medicine consultations in our centers and are exploring other projects to support the preservation and flourishing of this science.
WORLD TOUR FOR INNER PEACE
The World Tour for Inner Peace is a great opportunity for the monks of Gaden Shartse Monastic University to share their ancient wisdom with the western world through seminars, blessings, dances, chanting and rituals, and also to receive donations to support their monasteries.
