The Tibetan Center is dedicated to raising awareness about Tibetan culture and the continued conflict in Tibet following annexation of the Tibetan homeland by the People’s Republic of China.
Our work started more than 13 years ago as a small charity supporting Tibetans in Tibet and in exile. The Tibetan Center is a continuation and expansion of that work and a place to come and experience the beauty and genius of the Tibetan people.
The center holds a Dharma Hall, Tibetan Gift and Book Store, a Save Tibet Exhibit Room, Film Room/Tibetan Library, the Aid Tibet Thrift Store. There is also space for a planned Tibetan Medicine Holistic Clinic.
The Tibetan Center events include Tibetan Buddhism teachings, film screenings, and music and dance performances. To view our most recent event, a panel discussion on The Future of Tibet, visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXVIXiCFMHs
The Tibetan Gift Store, with handmade Himalayan Arts and Crafts, and the Aid Tibet Thrift Store, are the center’s main sources of support. The stores’ income helps to pay for administration, maintenance, overhead, supplies, publicity, and a stipend for a resident lama. Some of the work is generously supplied by volunteers.
In addition to donations made to charities from net proceeds, the center also fund raises for earthquake relief in Eastern Tibet and other projects.
The Tibetan Center is a project of Tibetan Charities, Inc., a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public charity.
