Mandala’s “FPMT News Around the World” shares the stories and news from the international community of FPMT centers, projects and service as well as provides updates on His Holiness the Dalai Lama, FPMT spiritual director Lama Zopa Rinpoche and other FPMT lamas and teachers. Submitting stories is a great way to connect with students and centers from around the world for the purposes of educating, inspiring and rejoicing.
If you are an FPMT center, project, service or study group and would like to submit your news, please read the following guidelines:
