About

Jewel Heart - A spiritual, cultural, and humanitarian organization that translates the ancient wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism into contemporary life.

Buddhism is a path for stabilizing and transforming the mind, leading to greater happiness and the fulfillment of human potential. Introduced in India over 2,500 years ago by the enlightened teacher Shakyamuni Buddha, Buddhism spread throughout Asia. In the seventh century Buddhism began to take root in the remote Himalayan region of Tibet.

During the next several hundred years many Indian masters made the journey to teach in Tibet. There Buddhist texts were translated into Tibetan and great masters such as Je Tsonkhapa composed new commentaries. Thousands of monasteries were founded, unique artistic and literary traditions were inspired, and extraordinary yogic practitioners flourished outside the monasteries, many of them in solitary retreat. Buddhism so radically transformed the culture over the next thousand years that Tibet has become a world symbol of spiritual mastery.

In recent decades, Buddhist principles and wisdom have begun to penetrate Western thinking in diverse disciplines such as science, psychology, medicine, metaphysics, and the arts. Jewel Heart seeks to serve as vehicle and witness to this process of personal and cultural transformation by translating the principles of Tibetan Buddhism into contemporary life, so that all may benefit from this living tradition.
