“Whatever joy there is in this world, all comes from desiring others to be happy and whatever suffering there is in this world, all comes from desiring myself to be happy.”
As another year comes to an end, we at the Ripa Ladrang Foundation wish you a wonderful holiday season and New Year. The holidays provide an excellent time for reflection and gratitude and we would like to thank you all for your generous support through the years and in 2015.
As an organization, we experienced many positive changes this year including numerous teachings, as well as upgrades in our infrastructure and operations. You will be receiving a comprehensive letter from Alan Goldstein, President of Ripa Ladrang Foundation, at Lhosar with details of our accomplishments as well as defining the challenges and priorities that lie ahead.
We encourage you to renew your membership to the foundation for 2016 before December 31, 2015. Being a member of the foundation will enhance your relationship and experience with Ripa Ladrang and will give you discounts to all of our teaching programs. Your tax-deductible gift supports the work of the Ripa Ladrang Foundation. With your donation, know that you are improving the lives of monks, children and the elderly, as well as preserving the Buddhist teachings and Tibetan culture within the Ripa lineage.

We are thankful and extremely grateful for your continued support and generosity.
With Love and Gratitude,
The Ripa Ladrang Team
