Touching Gratitude Campaign

It is a rare privilege to devote oneself to full-time Dharma work, fulfilling the vision of Tarthang Tulku and his lineage of Nyingma teachers: preserving the Dharma in Asia and introducing Buddhist wisdom to the West. Our community is grateful for the opportunity to work on sacred projects, participate in the translation of Buddhist teachings, engage in activities benefiting all beings on our planet, and to have the opportunity to work so closely with an authentic and visionary teacher and guide.

Reading the websites of our sister organizations focuses our goals for Nyingma Trust to help sustain and preserve our community of like-minded individuals who have trained with and offered help to Rinpoche’s projects.

Our small yet effective group is expanding and also aging, and we will need a lot of support to help some of us into old age and to keep the health and vitality of our younger members strong. We hope you will join Nyingma Trust in a new campaign that wholeheartedly seeks to express the gratitude for all that has been built and for all who have worked so hard over the past forty years.

By participating in Touching Gratitude, you can express your own appreciation towards this vital work - not only by offering funds for support, but by accepting our patron gifts of sacred art, practice aids, literature and workshops, offered to help deepen your meditation and understanding of this tradition.

If you wish to learn more about exciting options for larger offerings or estate planning gifts, please contact our office by calling (510) 809-1550.
