The Southwest Buddhafield Endowment's mission is to serve Kyabje Garchen
Rinpoche by securing the future of his precious
land and center for Dharma, the Garchen Buddhist Institute.
Our goal is to create an endowment fund of $2 million dollars and use the annual
interest income to help defray the ongoing operating expenses of the Institute.

exist. Principally, it is the stupa and temple
that I have created with this motivation."
