Thank you for your continued support in 2017. Because of you, Ngakpa International continues to offer in-depth Buddhist Education worldwide.
Thanks to you we were able to offer:
This was also another year of training leaders, teachers, counselors, doctors and health professionals.
Our activities happened all over the globe. This year, Pema Khandro Rinpoche was a presenter at the International Buddhist Women’s Conference in Hong Kong. She was also one of the featured teachers at the Lion’s Roar Retreat in New York. While she went to Tibet and hand-delivered donations to Ngakpa schools in the Himalayan region, His Eminence Gyaldak Rinpoche offered rituals, teachings, and blessings at our Ngakpa school here in the West. We also hosted two Guest Lamas in our centers in California. In pursuit of our commitment to support wellness in body and mind, we led our signature Detoxification and Cleansing Retreats in California and Mexico, and all the while our local leaders led regular Meditation Classes in five cities and our Residential Centers fostered 30 residents.
Pema Khandro Rinpoche has continued to offer us extraordinary access to in-depth training and education in the esoteric Buddhist teachings of Vajrayana and Dzogchen. Through Vajrayana Training and Ngakpa Seminary, she has guided students in a classical Buddhist intellectual education while also offering retreats to give ongoing training in the contemplative sciences of the Buddhist Yogis. This past summer’s annual Dzogchen residential retreat at Mount Madonna was a major success with serious practice and serious joy.
This has all been possible due to the massive effort, ceaseless teaching, and tireless generosity of our beloved teacher, Pema Khandro Rinpoche.
But she cannot do this alone – your help is needed to make the continuation of this mission possible. We rely on donations to fund our activities, less than 50% of our operations are covered by tuition – it is donations that make our activities continue!
In particular, we rely on our End-of-Year Fundraising Drive to keep our activities thriving for another year. So please remember us in your year-end giving and Make a Donation Today.
We are a small grassroots organization, so your donations, however small or big, have a direct, potent impact.
You may make a one-time gift and you may also give monthly by being a Member. And for those of you have donated before, for this we heartily THANK YOU! We hope you will consider making a Year-End Donation!

|Special Gifts for You
The following three very large thangka prints from Tibet were hand selected by Pema Khandro Rinpoche during the Monkey Year Pilgrimage, carried back for her personal collection, and have been on display within the Meditation Hall at Khandro Ling Center in Virginia ever since.
The Monkey Year is significant because it is considered the Year of Padmasambhava’s birthday, the most auspicious year for Tantric Buddhism, which cycles around only every 60 years.
It is a print on canvas in the style available in Tibet, with a beautifully embroidered brocade which matches the collection in the Khandro Ling Meditation Hall. The entire dimensions are 67″ x 43″ while the print dimensions are 33″ x 22″. These three special thangkas are first-come-first-serve to those who donate $4,000 – click the links below!
