The goal of the Rigpa Endowment Fund is to provide the long-term financial security and resources that are necessary for the work of Rigpa to continue to flourish and grow, for the benefit of future generations. Thousands of students from all corners of the globe are now part of Rigpa, the Buddhist organization he created as a vehicle for his work.
Rigpa is widely respected throughout the Buddhist community for its authenticity, open-minded spirit and ability to accomplish major works. Many masters believe that Rigpa has a special role to play in the transmission of the Tibetan Buddhist teachings in the West, in particular, the traditions of Vajrayana and Dzogchen.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama and many other masters have urged us to make a long-term plan for the future of Rigpa’s work and to start putting it into action. We have a special responsibility to ensure that Rigpa’s legacy will continue to benefit generations to come, in ever increasing ways.
