The Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible, non-profit corporation dedicated to the welfare of all sentient beings and is totally dependent upon your donations for its continued existence. The Archive was established with virtually no seed funding and has developed solely through the kindness of our many supporters. Our further development similarly depends upon the generosity of those who see the benefit and necessity of this work, and we are so grateful to all our contributors, large and small, who make the work of the Archive possible.

Through the merit of having contributed to the spread of the Buddhist teachings for the sake of all sentient beings, may our benefactors and their families and friends have long and healthy lives, all happiness, and may all their Dharma wishes be instantly fulfilled.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Lama Yeshe, New Zealand, 1975.
