Founded in 2014, we have led efforts to increase awareness of environmental sustainability and cultural research in Menchukha, a remote village in the Eastern Himalayas. We provide research funding for projects relating to the region and also scholarships for college age youth from the region. 

 

Our Founder Naksang Rinpoche

Naksang Rinpoche was born  and raised in Mechuka  until  the age of 7 when he was sent to be educated in  South India. At the age of 13, he was recognized by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama as a tulku, a reincarnation of an accomplished  yogi. At the age of 20 Rinpoche left the monastery to become a lay Buddhist practitioner and completed traditional 3 year meditation retreat in a cave in the Indian Himalayas. He currently leads meditation retreats and  workshops in traditional Tibetan calligraphy. Rinpoche  leads an annual  expedition to Menchuka every year.


I am so looking forward to welcoming you to my home
— Naksang Rinpoche
