First-Ever Dalai Lama Library & Learning Center To Be Built In Ithaca, NY
Supported by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, a Public Fundraising Campaign is Underway to Develop a Hub of Compassionate and Humane Education on the Grounds of Namgyal Monastery, the Dalai Lama's North American Seat
"We are seeking the support of donors for a project of great benefit to all of humanity, the building of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama's Library and Learning Center," said Tenzin Choesang, President of Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca. "Our vision – one that is supported and shared by the Dalai Lama – is to encourage genuine human interconnection and unity in an increasingly divided world. The Dalai Lama Library and Learning Center will do this by creating a transformational hub of compassionate and humane education that is open to everyone, both in-person and online."
The Dalai Lama Trust kicked off the fundraising campaign with a $1.3 million donation, and generous donors and members of the public already have donated an additional $1.2 million of the $5 million needed by year's end to bring the Library and Learning Center to fruition. With suggested donation levels starting at $25, there is an opportunity for many to express their support for the project.
"We welcome all types of support – be it funds, time or other resources – from individuals to corporations, foundations and other organizations,"
