FPMT MISSION STATEMENT

The FPMT is an organization devoted to preserving and spreading Mahayana Buddhism worldwide by creating opportunities to listen, reflect, meditate, practice and actualize the unmistaken teachings of the Buddha and based on that experience spreading the Dharma to sentient beings.


The FPMT is based on the Buddhist tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa of Tibet as taught by its founders, Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche.


Milarepa Center is dedicated to providing integrated education through which people’s minds and hearts can be transformed into their highest potential for the benefit of others, inspired by an attitude of universal responsibility and service. We are committed to creating a harmonious environment and helping all beings develop their full potential of infinite wisdom and compassion.
