Year End Appeal


Dear Friends and Members of Jewel Heart:

Every holiday season we look forward to sharing with you a view of the work that Jewel Heart has done during the previous year, and this time is no exception.  

We note Demo Rinpoche’s timely teachings and retreats, the near completion of the expansive Gelek Rimpoche Archive, the growing number of online students from around the globe, and the resumption of in-person gatherings after a long absence. We were fortunate to continue to receive important authentic teachings from HE Dagyab Rinpoche, Geshe Yeshe Thabkhe, Glenn Mullin, Robert Thurman, Guy Newland, Roger Jackson and David Mellins, as well as our Jewel Heart instructors’ courses. 

Going forward in 2023, we are planning for increased focus on Demo Rinpoche’s insightful teachings while still presenting an array of unique programs from visiting lamas and guests. 

With all that in mind, our heartfelt gratitude goes out to Demo Rinpoche and the others who make these events happen including our dedicated staff and those of you whose enthusiastic participation is the soul of Jewel Heart. 

While the current state of the world is chaotic, the practice of Buddhism and its principles remain helpful both to oneself and society at large. For this reason, Jewel Heart remains dedicated to presenting authentic Tibetan Buddhism with the aim of making this beneficial wisdom available to all.

Whether you personally participate in our programs or are a sympathetic supporter, we hope you will consider a year-end gift to Jewel Heart. Every donation helps ensure the success of our programs and with your support, together, we can continue to develop Jewel Heart as an institution which presents and preserves authentic Tibetan Buddhist teachings in a way that contributes to individual and societal benefits. 

As always, we thank you and wish you all a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year!
