Dzogchen Monastery Community Trust

Charity description

Dzogchen Monastery Community Trust logo
Dzogchen Monastery Community Trust (UK charity number: 1113856) was set up in 2006, as a not-for-profit organisation run by self-funding volunteers, to provide a bridge between Dzogchen Monastery (Sichuan province PR China – formerly Tibet) and the international community, supporting the monastery’s extensive community aid programme and promoting awareness and understanding of Tibetan Buddhism.

The Community Aid programme operates throughout Kham region (and beyond) and provides basic sustenance, environmental, medical and educational facilities for the Tibetan community, including poor monks and nuns.

Lotus Ground Retreat Centre, situated in the heart of beautiful Dzogchen valley, holds a major retreat every summer. Hundreds of monks and nuns attend, together with many Tibetan families, Chinese Buddhists and Westerners.

In order to publish the English translation of Kyabje Pema Kalsang Rinpoche’s book ‘Illusion of Life and Death’, DMCT trustees set up Mahasandhi Publishing in 2011. This is the first of Rinpoche’s writings to be made available in English. Mahasandhi Buddhist Group, was established in the UK in 2006, on the instructions of Kyabje Rinpoche. Since then we’ve been meeting regularly for the study and practice of authentic Tibetan Buddhism.
