All the suffering in the world comes from seeking pleasure for oneself. All the happiness in the world comes from seeking pleasure for others.



The Way of the Bodhisattva

For the past forty years, our network of Nyingma organizations have relied on the generosity of friends and donors to support our Dharma projects around the world. Although we are a relatively small network of individuals, our efforts have been maximized due to a fostered environment of can do coupled with must do! 


The Sarnath Institute is premised on the belief that all individuals are happiest when they are giving freely from their hearts. We believe that volunteering, providing technical services, financial support, and good wishes is the foundation of creating a more harmonious and happy environment.  Please contact us for more information on how you, your school, or family, can be involved. 


Support what you can to help develop goodness in the world! Share ideas, resources, and good wishes. You may also donate online through our US Paypal account:
