Securing Rigpa's Lineage and Legacy

  • Your donation to this grant will support the training and development of scholars, translators, teachers and practitioners, who cultivate their potential to a high level, and then share their knowledge and experience with others. In this way, the unbroken living lineage of wisdom that is the heart of the Buddhist tradition may continue to bring benefit to the world long into the future.

    Thank you for your generosity

  • Your donation to this grant will secure the teachings by sponsoring projects and programmes developed in Rigpa that use new channels to share the Dharma, in ways most adapted to these times of great unpredictability and fast-developing technologies.

    It will also help create the best circumstances for our current teachers as well as for students who aspire to be genuine Dharma practitioners, to deepen their study and practice, and mentor and train others so as to manifest as authentic lineage holders.

    Thank you for your generosity

  • Your donation will help to provide financial support for senior Rigpa members who have devoted their lives to Rigpa and reached retirement age, to spend the remaining years of their lives deepening their spiritual path, primarily as residents of sangha communities.

    Rigpa’s main retreat centres Lerab Ling, Dzogchen Beara and Dharma Mati, are in the process of creating an environment in which senior practitioners may live and practice together. Sangha members who are already living in those communities will have priority in the start-up phase of this project. 

    Thank you for your generosity

Support Rigpa's Retreat Centres

  • Rigpa's two precious retreat centres, which lie at the very heart of our mandala, have been greatly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. This has had a profound impact on both centres’ financial situation. Please continue to support us during this time of ongoing uncertainty. For other ways of donating like bank transfers etc., please contact donations@rigpa.org for Lerab Ling or fundraising@dzogchenbeara.org for Dzogchen Beara. The funds will be distributed proportionally according to the activities of the two centres. Thank you so much for your generosity.

All the names offered in dedication will be included in the practices. Your donation will support all drupchös and practice intensives in each country so that your merit will multiply around the world.

Support One or More Projects in Lerab Ling

  • Lerab Ling is home to a thriving community of monastic practitioners who observe a daily schedule of prayer and meditation, following one of the most ancient lineages of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition (the Nyingma school). It is a time-honoured tradition in Buddhism to make offerings to the ordained spiritual community (Sangha). According to the teachings of the Buddha himself, this is an especially meaningful way to practice generosity and accumulate merit.

    or €
  • Caring for our community of ordained and lay practitioners at Lerab Ling—who uphold our main spiritual practices and traditions—is one of our main responsibilities. Their health, well-being and support are vital for the life and activities of Lerab Ling. At the centre of this community is MayumTsering Wangmo, whose presence and blessings are felt by all. While much of all care and support is offered readily by those who live in Lerab Ling and locally, our expenses are growing and we are in need of more financial help. Please support us by making a one off or regular donation.

  • Please help to keep Tibet’s tradition alive in Lerab Ling. Your donation will preserve and maintain the temple, its sacred art and architecture, environment and infrastructure.

  • Your contribution will support and strengthen the practice holders of Lerab Ling, the monastic community as well as specialized practitioners. In Rigpa we uphold the full range of practices such as Longchen Nyingtik (e.g. Longchen Nyingtik Ngondro, Rigdzin Dupa, Yumka Dechen Gyalmo, Duk Ngal Rangdrol), Lerab Lingpa's termas (e.g. Tendrel Nyesel, Yang Nying Pudri), Chime Pakme Nyingtik (Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo's terma), and Zabtik Drolchok (from the Chokling tradition). We wish to bring more practitioners to Lerab Ling, to develop and offer a thorough Vajrayana practice curriculum and training, and provide more streaming possibilities to the world-wide sangha. For this, we need your support.

  • The holy shrine is still the most sacred place in Lerab Ling and a home to so many treasure objects that were offered by great masters of many different lineages to Sogyal Rinpoche. The building is ageing and the roof over the holy shrine needs to be replaced urgently. For many years we have been trying to patch up the roof but that is no longer adequate and we really need to do major construction to make it safe again. This will cost around €30,000. All donation regardless of their size are welcome.

Thank you so much for your generosity!
