Tibetan History, Tradition, and Culture are inseparably intertwined with spirituality and human development. This is evident in the lives of ordinary people, public life, symbols, and customs. Statues of great Buddhist thinkers and philosophers, ubiquitous prayer wheels and flags with mantras, sacred stupas, and depictions of characters from Tibetan mythology are present in almost every home. This serves as tangible evidence of the inseparability of Tibetan culture from Buddhist philosophy, which in the 11th – 14th centuries unified individual tribes into the Tibetan nation. Centers of traditional Buddhist philosophy in Tibet were hubs of culture, literature, medicine, and science, solidifying both statehood and knowledge.

The Foundation’s name originates from the Rime Movement (Tibetan: ri – border, division, me – without, devoid), which provided Tibetans with a common, neutral ground for dialogue between different traditions, enabling collaboration and development. This movement was initiated in the 19th century in Tibet by eminent meditation masters from the three Tibetan Buddhist schools: Ningma, Kagyu, and Sakya.

For us, Rime symbolizes openness to methods focused on internal development, allowing contemporary individuals to draw from the richness of Tibetan philosophy and culture.

We won’t find happiness through effort and willpower;
it is here, very close,
in relaxation and non-attachment.
You shouldn’t worry; there is nothing to do.
Whatever appears in the mind is insignificant
because it lacks reality.
Don’t attach yourself to thoughts; don’t judge them.
Let the mind play its game naturally, rising and falling;
don’t get entangled in it.
Everything endlessly disperses and begins anew.
The very pursuit of happiness is an obstacle to finding it.
Like chasing a rainbow we can never catch.
Because it doesn’t exist, because it has always been here,
because it accompanies you in every moment…

Quote from “Mahamudra” by Gendun Rinpoche
