About UTBF - Our Missions 

Established by His Eminence Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche as a nonprofit organization in 1992, UTBF is dedicated to the spiritual advancement of people worldwide through promotion of the principles of nonviolence, social justice and mutual understanding. More specifically, UTBF endeavors to preserve and promote the rich traditions of the Buddhist teachings, improve educational conditions for the general public and deliver basic spiritual help, healthcare and emergency relief for those in need.

Evolving from the United Trungram Buddhist Foundation, the United Trungram Buddhist Fellowship was inspired by His Eminence Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche in 2002, and is an association of not-for-profit Buddhist centers, most of which are nationally registered societies.

The United Trungram Buddhist Fellowship was founded on the belief that the traditional teachings of the Buddha can bring genuine awareness, happiness and benefit to our modern day lives. The Fellowship offers Buddhist teachings and practices preserved under the Trungram tradition through discourses, meditation and community services. UTBF is committed to creating harmonious environments and helping all beings develop their full potential of boundless wisdom and compassion.

Inspired by an attitude of universal responsibility, the Fellowship offers integrated education and spiritual guidance through which people's minds can be transformed to their highest potential for the benefit of others.

UTBF is based on the tradition of Milarepa who is considered to be Tibet's greatest poet saint and one of its most beloved yogis. Milarepa's biography and spiritual songs are some of the most loved works in Tibetan Buddhist traditions.
