Centers for Wellness - A New Vision for Inner Peace, Freedom, & Renewal
At Mangalam, we share spiritual arts, teachings, and practices to cultivate loving-kindness, compassion, inner peace, and wisdom in our daily lives. We would like to share with you a highlight of our recent activities.
We continue to work on Mangalam Asian Art Preservations for 84 Indian Mahasiddhas, 24 Togden Tibetan Mahasiddhas, Vajrayogini Naropa Lineage, and Shri Chakrasamvara Body Mandala Art Preservation Projects. We have completed 84 Indian Mahasiddha thangkas, and still need funding for 24 Togden Tibetan Mahasiddha thangkas, 45 Root and Lineage Gurus of Naropa Vajrayogini thangkas, and 62 Deities of Shri Chakrasamvara Body Mandala. These Mahasiddhas and Gurus are the source of the Vajrayana Buddhist teachings, meditations, and yantra yogas, including vayu, nadi, bliss, and mahamudra practices. We are going to share these arts, teachings, and practices in the form of books, podcasts, videos, and exhibitions as we have done for 21 Tara Art Preservation Project. We are joyful that our art videos have continued to be shared in more than 130 countries.
Teachings & Practices
We have launched Mangalam Online Course to provide systematic learning of profound Buddhist teachings. Mangalamkosha Publications have also published various books on Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana teachings and practices. These texts are available on Amazon. We have also continued our outreach program in various cities in Bahamas, California, Canada, Florida, Massachusetts, Maine, New York, North Carolina, Texas, and Vermont. In 2018, Sakya Institute for Buddhist Studies and Mangalam are honored to host His Holiness the Sakya Trichen to bestow important empowerments, blessings, and teachings, including Yamantaka, Medicine Buddha, Green Tara, Golden Tara, Long Life, and Vajrayogini.
We are very joyful and thankful to all of you who have generously supported us with your time, energy, and resources. May all of our effort bring genuine love, compassion, and wisdom to everyone.
