Getting Involved


A Letter to Our Friends

Dear Friend,

The mission of the Tibetan Cultural Center in Bloomington, Indiana is to provide opportunities to acquaint you with the history and culture of Tibet, to support Tibetans everywhere--both in Tibet and in exile--and to preserve Tibetan culture through educational and philanthropic endeavors. In 1992 Indiana Lieutenant Governor Frank O'Bannon added the Tibetan Cultural Center to the list of the Department of Tourism's "Hidden Treasures of Indiana." Our emphasis is on the practice of Buddhism as well as the study of Buddhist philosophy in the Tibetan tradition. We offer many programs annually, providing teachings, retreats, and practice under the guidance of its founding Rinpoche, Thubten Jigme Norbu, the eldest brother of His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama. Preserving the Tibetan culture and at the same time interacting with people from different backgrounds build bridges to enable us to reach out to other sentient beings. By opening our hearts, we support all the cultures and religions in the world. Our aim is to create an environment which will foster peace, love, and compassion.

We hope you will consider becoming a member of the Tibetan Cultural Center. As a member you will receive a discount on all our events.  Our membership fund contributes to keeping the Tibetan culture and Buddhist teachings alive on the local level.
