“Mientras perdure el espacio y queden seres, hasta entonces, que yo también permanezca para eliminar el sufrimiento del mundo”
The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) is an international non profit organization founded in 1975 by Lama Thubten Yeshe (1935-84) and Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, who is its spiritual director.
The Foundation is devoted to preserving and spreading Mahayana Buddhism worldwide by creating opportunities to listen, reflect, meditate, practice, and actualize the unmistaken teachings of the Buddha and based on that experience spreading the Dharma to sentient being.
“This organization is for the benefit of all beings. Its main purpose is to help develop the wisdom and the knowledge of the Dharma in the human consciousness. This is its sole reason to exist.”
