His Holiness the Dalai Lama has given his approval to the proposal of Namgyal Monastery Institute of Buddhist Studies, Ithaca, NY, U.S.A. It is His Holiness’ hope that the Library and Museum will be able to provide qualified Buddhist studies to the future generation,spread the teaching of Buddha and make the world non-violence and peaceful. We therefore welcome any assistance provided for the successful completion of this proposal.
It is our view that this project is necessary in order to serve the growing interest for the pursuit of studies of Tibetan Buddhism and to preserve the knowledge of His Holiness. The facilities will also provide space for a forum for interfaith dialogue and exchange of ideas with the scientific community.
We whole-heartedly indorse this project and appreciate any support you could provide.
Thank you for your interest and assistance in this important endeavor.
