Preserving ancient wisdom - Akasha Academy

Reviving Ancient Wisdom

Thanks to Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche’s unbroken aspiration, an almost extinct original Buddhist practice path could be reconstructed and revived. Its wisdom will be harbored at the Akasha Academy Headquarters in Nepal.

Ancient knowledge for a modern world

As Master Practitioner of Vajrayana (Tantric Buddhism), Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche is gifted to transmit the ancient teachings and according practices to our modern world, connecting Eastern healing arts with Western medical knowledge, thus keeping this heritage alive and making it accessible for the benefit of future generations.

Currently, traditional Buddhist rituals and original Dharma teachings are mainly held by Tulku Khyngdor Rinpoche at the Akasha Academy Munich, organized by the German association Long Yang e.V. This provides the rare opportunity for people from the West to experience original Buddhist spiritual practices and healing arts.

Preserving ancient texts for the future

Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche has been restoring precious texts over several decades, which will be preserved at the Akasha Academy library. In cooperation with the Buddhist Digital Resource Center (former TBRC), many ancient texts could already be preserved, which otherwise would have been lost to decay of the paper.

Also, transforming the ancient handwritten texts into typed Tibetan syllables, helps to preserve the knowledge for those who are not able to read the old handwriting any more.

It’s a race against time to keep as many texts alive for the future and preserve this ancient wisdom. The respective work is extensive and requires continuous funding from generous donors. Please get in touch if you would like to support this project; especially if you are an experienced graphic designer and/or fluent in the Tibetan language.
