Sangha Onlus

In accordance with the wishes of Venerable Geshe Jampa Gyatso that the many aspects of the Buddhist path are preserved and grown, as well as to motivate people’s sincere desire for spiritual growth, a few monks and nuns established Associazione Sangha Onlus (NGO).

Associazione Sangha Onlus is a registered charity trust whose main purpose is the building of a monastic complex which will be open to all ordained sangha, with a separate monastery and nunnery.

The idea behind this project is to create an ideal environment conducive to study, meditation and a lifestyle based on the vinaya – the tradition which regulates the ethical and moral discipline of the ordained sangha, as taught by Buddha Shakyamuni.

Actualising this project will enable the monks and nuns to embody the ethical, doctrinal and spiritual values of the teachings of the Buddha, provide a valid support for the activities of Lama Tzong Khapa Institute and other Buddhist centres, and additionally be an important and stable reference point for the benefit of all sentient beings.
