A Message from Tsoknyi Rinpoche

We are happy to announce the merger of Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation into the Pundarika Foundation U.S. on January 1, 2024. This change will help both of Tsokyni Rinpoche’s U.S. based organizations to work as one to fulfill Rinpoche’s heart wish to support the Tsoknyi Nuns and his teaching activities. Thank you for your patience as we manage this transformation. For more information on the merger, including questions about donations, read more here.

The Gift of Lifetimes

The potential of the Tsoknyi Nuns, as envisioned by Rinpoche, is for them to achieve enlightenment in female form. Sustaining and nourishing their  practice through an endowment allows this wisdom tradition to flourish far beyond our lifetimes. Help us in supporting Rinpoche’s heart project of creating the Tsoknyi Nuns’ Endowment Fund.

Become a Legacy Donor

“When people meet the nuns, even when conducting the simple tasks of daily life, they are changed for the better. How does this happen? It is because they have become a living source of peace, love, and compassion.”

~Tsoknyi Rinpoche
