His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso

Three Main Commitments in Life

Firstly, on the level of a human being, His Holiness first commitment is the promotion of human values such as compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline. All human beings are the same. We all want happiness and do not want suffering. Even people who do not believe in religion recognize the importance of these human values in making their life happier. His Holiness refers to these human values as secular ethics. He remains committed to talk about the importance of these human values and share them with everyone he meets.

Secondly, on the level of a religious practitioner, His Holiness second commitment is the promotion of religious harmony and understanding among the world's major religious traditions. Despite philosophical differences, all major world religions have the same potential to create good human beings. It is therefore important for all religious traditions to respect one another and recognize the value of each other's respective traditions. As far as one truth, one religion is concerned, this is relevant on an individual level. However, for the community at large, several truths, several religions are necessary.

Thirdly, His Holiness is a Tibetan and carries the name of the Dalai Lama. Tibetans place their trust in him. Therefore, his third commitment is to the Tibetan issue. His Holiness has a responsibility to act as the free spokesperson of the Tibetans in their struggle for justice. As far as this third commitment is concerned, it will cease to exist once a mutually beneficial solution is reached between the Tibetans and Chinese.

However, His Holiness will carry on with the first two commitments till his last breath.

Tibetan Aid Project

We value Tibet's ancient tradition of meditative insight into the potential of human consciousness, passed down from teacher to student as a living lineage for more than twelve centuries.

We respect the knowledge that Tibet can offer the world as a means to secure peace on Earth and honor the worth of all beings.

We apply in our work the practice of skillful means, making work a means of deep satisfaction and inner growth.

We strive to practice generosity, ethical conduct, patience, intensity of effort, focus, and wisdom in our work and in our interactions.

We focus to meet the most urgent needs of the Tibetan people and maximize the value of each donor's contribution.

We support the education of young Tibetans, mindful that the next generation will determine the future of this great civilization.

We collaborate with a network of nonprofit Buddhist organizations, each working in its own way to preserve the heritage of Tibet.

We donate our services as individuals, so that funds can go directly to programs that benefit Tibetans, enabling them to share their wisdom and compassion worldwide.

Tibetan Home of Hope

Tibetan Home of Hope is a home and school for children who would otherwise be abandoned – a home in the deepest sense, where young people receive loving care, food, shelter, medical attention and the practical foundation needed to develop into independent adults with a full appreciation of their Tibetan heritage.

We are unique in that we provide for Tibetan children in their native land – where there is a desperate and immediate need. Harsh living conditions mean that each year thousands of Tibetan children are left on their own. Sadly, many of these children are sent to orphanages outside of their native country, far from their family contacts and cultural roots.

Founded in 2006 by Tibetan Doctor Tashi Dolma, Tibetan Home of Hope occupies a spectacular location along the banks of the Yellow River in the Amdo region of Tibet, 1,000 miles east of Lhasa. Our buildings are constructed and designed traditionally, using locally-produced, environmentally-friendly Tibetan building materials.

The Art of Peace Foundation


The Art of Peace Foundation, is dedicated to achieving the Dalai Lama’s vision of creating peace within our selves and in the world. His message is as simple as it is profound — by cultivating inner peace, our actions in the world generate happiness and peace in others.

While committed to nonviolence, we actively engage injustices in the world. Our view is that nonviolence is not passive but demands that we engage the world to promote peace. Nonviolence does not equal non-action.

Our projects raise awareness of conflicts in the world while creating initiatives that enable you to take meaningful actions to promote peace. We welcome you in joining our efforts.
