KF is happy to announce a new Khyentse chair at the University of Michigan: the Khyentse Gendun Chopel Professorship. This is the largest gift dedicated to the study of Tibetan Buddhism in North America.

“As citizens of a world that is ever shifting, changing and even precarious, we must all seek and contemplate sources of strength and sanity. For centuries, Buddhist study and practice have proved to bring stability and harmony to both individuals and society,” said Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche. “So in this day and age, it is more crucial than ever that such wisdom be preserved and kept alive in important institutions of learning like the University of Michigan.”

The Focus also shares an update on Rinpoche’s first visit to Israel.
