Shechen is dedicated to the flourishing of Tibetan Buddhist spiritual and cultural activities, and to fulfilling the vision and projects of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910-1991) was one of the great luminaries of Tibetan Buddhism in the twentieth century. He was a highly realized and accomplished master committed to the transmission and preservation of Tibet’s spiritual legacy.
Under the guidance of Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche, our educational and cultural programs:
- Provide for the support and education of over 1,000 monks, nuns, and children who receive an authentic education in Buddhist philosophy, sacred arts, and meditation in our schools and monasteries.
- Preserve Tibet’s spiritual lineage through our philosophical colleges and retreat centers.
- Archive rare Tibetan books and artwork.
- Reproduce lost texts.
- Revive authentic Tibetan painting and crafts and the sacred dance tradition of eastern Tibet.
Our programs are located in Tibet, Nepal, India, and Bhutan. Through the generosity of sponsors and donors, Shechen has made great strides in preserving the living legacy of Tibet.’
