Challenge

In an age of uncertainty, multiple methods are needed for dealing with both individual emotional stress and, on a larger scale, societal tension. In the face of hardship, many people struggle to cope. Basic human values are often forgotten as greed and corruption have become commonplace. Mistrust among traditions abounds. The challenge is to make easily available, on a global scale, universally applicable practical methods for enhancing wisdom, compassion, and ethically responsible action.

Solution

Harnessing cutting-edge digital technology, our website brings the time-proven Tibetan teachings to over a million visitors a year worldwide. With thousands of articles and audio lectures, its clear explanations make the most profound insights of the Tibetan traditions understandable and applicable to daily life. In doing so, it better enables those who apply the wisdom found in studybuddhism.com to meet the challenges of our times in more realistic and compassionate way.

Long-Term Impact

With our website made sustainable and enabled to keep growing, the knowledge and experience the Tibetan traditions transmit will not be lost. They will continue to provide useful strategies that anyone can adopt for dealing with the challenges that lie ahead.
