COVID-19 Update:

Due to the current coronavirus situation, Chenrezig Institute is currently not accepting any applications for Work Exchange Program Volunteers or Day Volunteers.

Follow us on Facebook for the latest information as it comes to light.

Advice given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche and resources can be found on the FPMT website. Geshe Tsultrim, at this time, reminds us of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s advice of reciting the Tara Mantra and encourages us to recite 100 malas a day!
