Tibetan culture with its unique heritage ... has
developed a kind of energy which is very helpful
for cultivating peace of mind and a joyful life.

Tibet is an ancient nation of people inhabiting
the highest land mass in the world, the one
million square mile Tibetan plateau. With its
rich natural resources and heritage exploited and
devastated, major efforts are needed to protect
the people and their unique culture.

Nobel Peace Laureate, His Holiness the Dalai Lama
conveyed that "Tibetan culture with its unique
heritage ... has developed a kind of energy which
is very helpful for cultivating peace of mind and
a joyful life." However, with the occupation of
Tibet by Chinese rule, which led to his exile, he
also warned that Tibetan culture is "nearing extinction."

Tibet House US, a non-profit cultural embassy and
educational institution, was founded in 1987 at
the request of the Dalai Lama. It aims to
preserve and promote the rich and unique Tibetan
culture by functioning as a cultural center in
New York City and providing access for interested
audiences globally. It is part of a worldwide
network of Tibetan institutions dedicated to keep
the flame of the Tibetan spirit burning.
