The aim of Universal Wisdom Education is to take forward the Dalai Lama’s vision by helping children, youth, and adults of all cultures and traditions to develop their innate capacity to be kind and wise, and contribute to peace in the world. Universal Wisdom Education is an initiative of The Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom, a non-profit organization set up in January 2005. Working at grassroots, it provides resources, training and connections for use in schools and colleges, healthcare, hospices and drug rehab, prisons, workplace, and the home.
Liberation Prison Project offers spiritual advice and teachings, as well as books and materials, to people in prison interested in exploring, studying and practicing Buddhism. A Tibetan Buddhist organization and social services project affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition, since 1996 the project has supported the Buddhist practice of over 20,000 prisoners. Active mainly in the U.S. and Australia, where we are established as nonprofit organizations in Raleigh, NC, and the Australian Blue Mountains, we also have branches in New Zealand, Spain, Mexico, Mongolia and Italy.
We work in association with:
Venerable Geshe Jampa Gyatso strongly wished that the many aspects of the Buddhist path be preserved and grow. He also wanted to motivate people’s sincere desire for spiritual growth. In accordance with these wishes, six years ago a group of monks and nuns established Associazione Sangha Onlus (NGO). The purpose of Associazione Sangha Onlus is to give life to a large project: the building of a monastery open to ordained sangha, male or female, living in accommodation conducive to retreat and sincere study, practice, and a lifestyle based on the vinaya—the monastic ethical conduct taught by Buddha Shakyamuni. A monastery will enable monks and nuns to embody the ethical, doctrinal, and spiritual values of the teachings of the Buddha, provide a valid support for the activities of Lama Tzong Khapa Institute and other Buddhist centers, and serve as an important and stable touchstone for the benefit of all sentient beings.
Stupa Onlus is a not for profit humanitarian organization with the purpose of promoting, developing, and managing humanitarian charitable work in Asian, Africa, and Latin America countries. An international community of more than 47 stupa builders, it’s not-for-profit activities are exclusively aimed at supporting, developing, caring for, protecting, and preventing harmful actions concerning social and humanitarian assistance in the form of renovating and rebuilding stupas throughout the world.
Mindfulness Project is a non-profit organization whose goal is to contribute to deepening the dialogue between Western thought and Eastern culture, with particular reference to the Buddhist tradition.
The Mindfulness Project Association was founded in 2003 when experienced scientists, psychologists, psychotherapists, educators, counselors, and teachers of Buddhism joined together to research and transmit an effective “cultural translation” of the Buddhist teachings in order to make them more accessible in the West.

Yeshe Norbu in Tibetan means “Jewel of Wisdom” and is one of the titles of the Dalai Lama, who for most of the Tibetans is the symbol of their culture and the hope for a Tibet where everyone is free.
The purpose of the Association is to preserve the ethical and social values of Tibet and other Buddhist countries that have experienced invasion or repressive cultural and religious regimes, by giving aid and support. The Association specifically facilitates “long-distance adoptions” and community projects. It is a member of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition.
The Dare Protezione Association was founded with the purpose of supporting the right to receive appropriate spiritual care for those nearing the end of their life. They work on the basis that spiritual needs are born with the person himself or herself and evolve at the same time as their development. These needs may be manifested as spiritual distress during the late phase of disease, especially with the approach of death. Given a supportive environment, there is an opportunity for the distress to be transformed.
The International Academy for Traditional Tibetan Medicine (IATTM) was established in 2006 in order to ensure the integrity and authenticity of Traditional Tibetan Medicine teachings and to promote the continuity of practice of Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM).
