Mission Statement

Gain non-profit experience. Help protect Tibet's endangered cultural inheritance. Contribute to transmitting Tibetan Buddhist teachings to the West (Berkeley, California).

Description

The Nyingma Association of Mandala Organizations (NAMO) is a group of Buddhist non-profits formed to preserve, protect, and support Tibetan culture, staffed entirely by volunteers. Starting with the Chinese occupation in 1959, Tibet's heritage has been under threat. Tarthang Tulku, a lama trained in pre-Communist Tibet, founded the NAMO organizations, starting in 1969. Under his guidance, we have printed and donated more than 4.5 million books in Tibetan, produced 130 English-language titles, organized the Annual World Peace Ceremony in India for 26 years, where over 8,000 monks and nuns gather each year to chant for peace at the place of the Buddha's Enlightenment in Bodh Gaya. We have also supported Buddhists of all traditions, taught meditation and Buddhist teachings to over 100,000 Westerners.

A work-study program, the Mandala Training Program, is available for those interested in exploring a more long-term commitment.

This is a six month program with nominal tuition. The next session starts in January 2017.
