“Joy is the reward, really, of seeking to give joy to others. When you show compassion, when you show caring, when you show love to others, do things for others, in a wonderful way you have a deep joy that you can get in no other way.”
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World
How You Can Donate and Help Ngari Institute
Ngari Institute of Buddhist Dialectics is an Indian nongovernmental organization based in Ladakh, India, and the success of this project depends solely on others’ support. (It is not a US nonprofit, although it is currently researching how to become one.) The institute was endorsed by the Office of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in September 2008.
Your generous donation is greatly appreciated and much needed. All funds generated will benefit 60 underserved children in the Ngari monks’ homeland, one of the last places in the world where Buddhism has been unrepressed since 270 BCE.
Ways You Can Donate
1. Donate during the US Mandala Tour
Attend one of our events in California or Colorado and learn about Himalayan culture, so you can give a gift that will help preserve traditional Ladakhi culture and educate underserved children in Ladakh.
2. Sponsor a Mandala Tour or a Student
The success of Ngari Institute’s project depends solely on others’ support. We have just a few long-term supporters for our huge expenses. So Geshe-la has decided to tour every part of world to introduce more people to Ladakh and the culture of Tibet. He requests that different individuals and organisations support the Ngari Institute’s project by inviting the institute’s mandala tour (sand mandala, Dharma dance, and cultural program) to their towns to fund-raise for the project. In addition, Geshe-la also opened a separate Sponsorship Program to ensure the ongoing education of the children. If you are interested, please contact us.
3. Donate by Wire Transfer
Another option, especially for those who would like to sponsor a child, is to send a wire transfer through your bank (a transfer fee applies):
