The “COMPASSION GARDEN Buddhist Foundation for the benefit of all beings” has, according to its Constitution, the following charitable, non-profit and general interest goals:
The Foundation provides teachings and practices based on the philosophy of wisdom and compassion to help people develop their potential and thereby contribute to a better world.
The practical and non-dogmatic nature of the teachings means that anyone can benefit regardless of their religious or spiritual beliefs.
Through specific local and international projects, the Foundation helps populations in precarious situations with needs that the Foundation can meet, prioritizing those of Tibetan origin in the Himalayas, especially in India and Nepal, whose rich culture (like art and natural health practices) also supports.
The Foundation is committed to being an example of engaged Buddhism and effective social help, contributing to the improvement of the society in which we live.
In line with the motivation of universal benefit, the Foundation develops initiatives for harmony, peace and inter religious and secular dialogue, emphasizing spirituality as a fundamental dimension to be considered as a complement to science and materialism.
Within its philosophy of openness, humanism and universality, it collaborates with other organizations with different philosophies and beliefs and similar altruistic purposes, as well as with secular and scientific organizations.
The attitude of universal altruism, for the benefit of all sentient beings, is our leading principle
Our Foundations follows the universal values of the Universal Vehicle of Buddhism in its internal operation and external activities.
