Welcome. In the 21st century we have an ocean of resources. We’re not lacking information, knowledge, or wisdom. What we need is a mind that is capable of processing it all.

Upcoming Events and Programs


We will be celebrating LOSAR as a community at NBNY:
Friday, February 16 from 7:00-9:00 pm

Losar is the Tibetan New Year and is the start of the “month of miracles,” miracles that the Buddha performed to tame non-buddhists after his enlightenment. Losar is a time to start with a new outlook. It is a good time to be mindful of our emotions because our attitude at this time will set the tone for the rest of our year. Please join us!

New Lease Campaign 2018 Update: We’ll be closing our New Lease Campaign 2018 this week. But we want to say “thank you” to the over 20 donors who supported NBNY. We raised over $7,000! And due to Acharya Lhakpa not being in NYC until this summer, we’ve delayed our Fulton Street spruce up project. We’ll announce a project start date upon his return. Thank you again for all of your support and see you in 2018! —The NBNY Fundraising Team
