Patrons of the Dharma

Rinpoche’s activities are vast and require ongoing support to ensure that they all continue to flourish for the future generations. Here you can find more information on how you can support these projects.

Endowment Fund

The goal of the Endowment Fund is to provide long-term financial support necessary to see all Rinpoche’s activities to continue to expand and thrive. To create a sustainable future for Rinpoche’s vast and diverse humanitarian and compassionate outreach, an Endowment fund has been created. The aim of establishing the fund is to provide a stable source of support for all aspects of Rinpoche’s activities. Having a secure fund in place will ensure future generations will continue to benefit and help stabilize the foundation.

Buddhist practice is not just about meditation, prayer or ceremony. It is equally about the way we live our daily lives, how we interact with the world, and how we treat other beings.

Akara means “mine of jewels” in Pali, the earliest known language in which the Buddha’s teachings were written. Each item we create or select supports Dharma practice or simply speaks to the beauty of life in the land of the Buddha.

We are dedicated to supporting charitable activities and development projects, benefiting people in need and supporting craftspeople through fair trade.

We maintain our original vision to create genuine products to benefit beings. How do we do this? We produce items according to authentic traditions, supporting both spiritual practitioners and spiritual seekers. We help dedicated craftspeople striving to preserve their culture to make a fair living, and support humanitarian and development projects; thus generating merit for the buyer!
