What We Have Achieved
Rinpoche’s life work has been to preserve and transmit the teachings that his highly accomplished teachers had passed on to him. He has focused on preserving sacred texts, writing works for a Western audience, and creating communities built around Buddhist principles. His family and students have taken on the awesome responsibility of sharing his vision with others and creating a vibrant and enduring home for the Dharma in the West.

The Nyingma Mandala community is determined that the great wisdom tradition of Tibetan Buddhism shall not end as other cultures have, their knowledge lost to humanity.
