Our vision is for everyone to experience their pristine minds, and to find unconditional happiness and fulfillment within. To accomplish this we will offer programs in the following four areas: Meditation Teachings - for individuals seeking to improve the quality of their lives. Buddhist Teachings & Practices - for those who wish to study and apply lessons from traditional Buddhist texts and practice manuals. Teacher Training - for qualified students to carry on the authentic lineage to ensure that these teachings survive and flourish. Specialized Programs - for business leaders, educators, psychologists, health care providers, entrepreneurs, lawyers, and other professionals who would like to learn how to apply powerful methods such as meditation, mindfulness, and good-heartedness to improve every area of their lives.
Pristine Mind Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche dedicated to helping people live fully, die fearlessly, and transform every area of their lives by offering accessible and experiential Buddhist teachings.
Our foundational teachings are filled with the richness and authenticity of thousands of years of spiritual experience and tradition. But the enlightened teachings that Buddha taught are not bound by culture; rather they are a psychology of the mind based on universal principles for achieving happiness, inner peace, and enlightenment. Pristine Mind Foundation is dedicated to capturing the essence of these timeless, transcendent teachings and presenting them with complete relevance and applicability to contemporary life.
The journey to enlightenment is not a mystery. Even enlightenment itself is not something foreign or exotic; it is our natural state. The Pristine Mind teachings provide a clear map to that innately healthy state. Just as with any journey it is helpful to have experienced guidance along the path. The goal of Pristine Mind Foundation is to provide that guidance.
