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,

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