Relieving suffering through education

Through education of all kinds, the Trungram Gyalwa Foundation promotes harmony and relief from suffering. In 2003, H.E. Trungrum Gyalwa Rinpoche, PhD was inspired to establish a foundation to support both traditional and modern education, with an endowment to support it in perpetuity. He believes such education is essential not only for individual growth, but for the prosperity of communities, nations and the world at large. In 2015, a group of generous founders—students of Rinpoche’s—each made a major contribution to seed the endowment fund, formally establishing the Foundation.
