Support the Activities of Samye Institute

In order to maintain our current activities, deliver our future roadmap and remain firm as the bedrock of our global sangha, Samye needs your ongoing support. We invite you to support Samye Institute in whatever way you prefer and be a direct cause for our activities to flourish and expand.

Samye Institute launched in 2015. Our worldwide volunteer team has helped us evolve into a hub for Phakchok Rinpoche’s vast teaching activities. Under Rinpoche and his senior instructors’ guidance our mission focuses on providing support for all those who wish to practice the Buddhadharma.

We welcome all offerings, regardless of the amount. Our wish is for every user to make an auspicious connection with Samye Institute.

Become a Samye Patron

You receive full access to our growing library of recorded teachings from Phakchok Rinpoche and Samye’s learned Druplas, Khenpos, and other qualified instructors. As a Samye Patron you also have free access to our entire catalog of 15 self-paced online courses.
