We are a very low-key organization ori­ented towards facilitating Dhamma teachings and interconnections. We “midwifed” the Sanghapala Foundation until its separate incorporation in 1995 for the support of a Thai forest tradition monastery in the Ajahn Chah/Ajahn Sumedho lineage. We facilitated the his­toric lewish-Tibetan Buddhist dialogues described in the book Jew in the Lotus, which became the basis for a major film on the subject. We support Dr. Alex Ber­zin of Dharamsala in his worldwide teachings. loin the fun! There’s much to be done!
