At the June Board meeting, research data gathered by the selection committee was shared with Rinpoche and the Khyentse Foundation Board of Directors. A vote was taken and the University of California at Berkeley was chosen as the institution for the Khyentse Foundation Chair of Buddhist Studies. Berkeley offers an attractive combination of an established Buddhist studies program, an extensive library of texts, enthusiasm for our partnership, and a relatively low cost commitment. The Foundation is now seeking a sponsor to fund this endeavor, which will further establish Buddhism in the West and benefit many sentient beings for generations to come. It is a valuable opportunity for an individual donor, family trust, memorial fund, private foundation, corporation, or other body to make a consequential and far reaching contribution to Buddhism. In addition, the sponsor will have the option of sharing naming rights. Complete information packets are now available for those interested.
