FPMT North American Regional Group
Lama Thubten Yeshe
Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Welcome to the website for The North American Region of the
Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).

We are an association of centers, projects, services and study groups throughout the United States and Canada.

Our activities are devoted to the transmission of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through teaching, meditation and community service. We provide 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. We are committed to creating harmonious environments and helping all beings develop their full potential of infinite wisdom and compassion.

We are dedicated to the preservation and spread of the Mahayana Buddhist teachings and Universal Wisdom Education using a variety of educational formats, meditation, and service throughout an array of communities. We aspire to provide services in our communities that embody the values of harmony, compassion, integrity, and wisdom. See the FPMT website for a full list of our members in the United States and Canada, or view a clickable map of the region.

Currently, we are developing our schedule of activities for 2012. Please check back to see for actual and virtual opportunities to participate! If you have any questions you can contact us at info@fpmtna.org.

FPMTNA communicates the vision of peace and harmony expressed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Thubten Yeshe, and Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Our vision of community service has significant breadth as we have opportunities for interfaith projects, children, youth, seniors, animals, and persons of all ages who are interested in living happy and fulfilling lives.

Please take a look at our Volunteer and Job Opportunities page.
