Welcome! The Tibetan word jhamtse means "love and compassion" and is the cornerstone of the work of Jhamtse International.

Want to see through your fears and live happily in the present? Save the date: Saturday, May 24 from 10am - 4pm
Lila Kate Wheeler will lead a session in Concord titled This Is The Only Moment. Lila says "We humans have a big brain that easily gets mesmerized by its own creations. With his typical humor, the Buddha suggests that clinging to this present moment is the key to letting go of all the fears, anxieties, and regrets that make us miserable. Today we will train our brain to wake up to the present, release fermented hallucinations, and connect with life's natural balance and richness." Suggested donation $40. Space limited.

What is Jhamtse International?

Ten years ago, Venerable Lobsang Phuntsok, a Buddhist monk from the Tawang region, came to the US and started Jhamtse Buddhist Center, five communities in Massachusetts studying and practicing the Mahayana Buddhist tradition of love, compassion, and wisdom. On this foundation, Jhamtse Gatsal, a school in remote northeast India, gives desperately poor children a chance to thrive and learn for the first time. Finally, Jhamtse Clubs inspire young people to explore the power of love, compassion, and wisdom in the world.
