In Manjushri’s Service

Become a Sponsor, Friend or Patron of Manjushri

To realize the visionary aspirations of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Khyentse Foundation announced a new development program in 2013: In Manjushri’s Service (IMS).

Manjushri is the Bodhisattva of Wisdom and Lord of Speech, an awakened warrior of boundless compassion, who vowed to take rebirth under any circumstances in order to teach all future Buddhas. Inspired by Manjushri’s limitless wisdom and tireless activities, and under Rinpoche’s guidance, Khyentse Foundation’s numerous projects are all focused on a single ultimate goal: to bring all sentient beings to Buddhahood, the state of full awakening or enlightenment.

The purpose of IMS is to fund all of Khyentse Foundation’s activities worldwide, from the smallest individual grant to the largest university-based education project. Presently, the Foundation depends almost entirely on the generosity of individuals and private foundations, mostly friends and students of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, who wish to see his vast aspirations fulfilled.

There are three ways to support and join the IMS program:

Sponsors of Manjushri
Become a Sponsor of Manjushri by pledging a donation (one-time or otherwise) of any amount.
If you have ever made a donation to KF, you are an IMS Sponsor of Manjushri.

Friends of Manjushri
Become a Friend of Manjushri by pledging a monthly donation to Khyentse Foundation. Pledge a recurring contribution of any amount, and your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by the Patrons of Manjushri, literally doubling your donation. If you are already a KF monthly donor, you are automatically an IMS Friend of Manjushri.

Patrons of Manjushri
Become a Patron of Manjushri by contributing to the Matching Fund pool created to double the recurrent/monthly donations made by Friends of Manjushri.

Partnership for Enlightenment

In Manjushri’s Service invites individuals, corporations, institutions, and foundations to be true partners and collaborators in a range of long-term projects undertaken by Khyentse Foundation. Our aspiration is that the IMS circle of friends, sponsors and patrons will form a stable basis for the Foundation to significantly increase our support for worthwhile projects within the next decade.

The great Tibetan yogi-saint Milarepa said that, “the practitioner in the cave and the patron in the city will reach enlightenment together.” Members of the IMS circle can take satisfaction in the knowledge that their generosity is creating the favorable conditions that support and further Buddhist study and practice worldwide.
