Support by Making a Donation

Maitripa Centre is a not-for-profit organisation established by Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX to foster cooperation and harmonious relationships between all spiritual, religious and secular traditions pursuing humanitarian ideals. By providing a venue for retreats, conferences and workshops on meditation, yoga, philosophy, the arts and the helping professions, we strive to encourage religious and social harmony. The upkeep of our facilities relies upon the support of individuals and sponsoring organisations. By making a donation you will assist in upholding the legacy of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche.
