Charitable Projects

Kopan Monastery has a number of affiliated centers, sangha communities, and charitable projects that it takes care of on behalf of the FPMT and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

All of these projects were initiated with the express purpose of serving living beings in a special way, according to their needs. All living beings - be they human or animal – are in need of care, loving kindness, and most of all in need of Dharma. 

We invite you to share our concern for the welfare of others by giving financial support to these projects. You bring help to many different groups of beings in very practical ways – securing their survival and helping them to flourish in the Dharma, and in the case of the animal sanctuary, preventing their the untimely death, by improving their living conditions,  providing education, and giving them access to social services and most importantly supporting them in their practice of Dharma.

Of special area of concern are the remote monastic communities. They are vital in keeping the precious teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha alive and vibrant in these dark times. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has repeatedly stressed how important it is to support these places of Dharma practice, as a means to secure the survival of the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition for future generations. Therefore Kopan Monastery makes great efforts to support their activities.
