Aspire! Fundraising Campaign Launches

Opening Access to a Living Buddhist Tradition

“RYI envisions a world in which a wide diversity of people, interested in learning about Buddhism, has easy access to a living Buddhist tradition in order to foster the qualities of wisdom and compassion for the benefit of all sentient beings.” 

Will you help us to expand our vision? For 25 years, Rangjung Yeshe Institute has been serving students from around the world on our campus in Kathmandu. Now, we ASPIRE! to go out and meet our students around the globe through the power of technology and online learning. We are motivated by our vision to offer easy access to a living Buddhist tradition to a wide diversity of people in order to foster wisdom and compassion for the benefit of all sentient beings. We are driven by our commitment to academic excellence, kindness and compassion, integrated communities, and putting what we learn into practice in the world.
