Update on the Panchen Lama Tashi Lhunpo Project (PLTLP) efforts to support Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in exile in Bylakuppe, India.

The Panchen Lama Tashi Lhunpo Project (PLTLP) is a non-profit organization that respects and supports the unique scholarly lineage and culture of His Holiness the Panchen Lama, recognized as the second most important figure in Tibetan Buddhism.   PLTLP is committed to rebuilding Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in exile, the traditional seat of His Holiness the Panchen Lama.


Under the direction of Khen Rinpoche Geshe Kachen Lobzang Tsetan, Abbot of Tashi Lhunpo, the monastery is being reestablished to its former greatness as a center for spiritual and scholarly study in the Gelug, or Gelugpa “Yellow Hat” tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.  Tashi Lhunpo in exile in Bylakuppe, India, is an important monastic institution for all Tibetans and anyone else interested in Tibetan Buddhism, the Dharma teachings, or the culture and people of Tibet.


In that pursuit, Tashi Lhunpo Monastery is currently building a new state-of-the-art library on the monastery grounds.  The initial capital campaign was estimated at approximately $600,000.00.  To date, over half this amount has been raised through the efforts of generous supporters and benefactors of the monastery, leaving a fund balance of $300,000.00 that is still needed.


Over the last decade, Khen Rinpoche has tirelessly traveled the world to teach Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and inspire people to help support the monastery.  His example of loving-kindness teaches us to be more compassionate human beings. 


His Holiness The Dalai Lama has a special connection to Tashi Lhunpo Monastery through his relationship with The Panchen Lama.  He  has given this project his blessing and is in total support of all efforts to see the monastery grow and thrive.  


The Monks of Tashi Lhunpo request your compassionate understanding and generous support to realize this project in order to ensure the preservation and dissemination of ancient wisdom and modern education.


The Panchen Lama Tashi Lhunpo Project is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that dedicates 100% of its donations to the monastery.   All donations are tax deductible.  Our tax ID number is FIN: 20-8018998.


Please donate as generously as you can.  ALL donations are received with gratitude and appreciation. If you can contribute monthly, this gives the monastery a more sustainable financial budget.  Use the DONATE button on the right side of the page. For more information feel free to contact Adrienne Moberly Vilaubi, Executive Director, at
