The Movement was born inside the Norbulingka Institute, a Trust under the chairmanship of His Holiness the Dalai Lama whose aim is to preserve Tibetan culture. The Embracing Compassion Movement organizes events in support of Tibetan Art, focusing on the creation of special projects.
The first of these is the Lives of the Dalai Lama a collection of 25 exquisitely executed thangkas commissioned by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and created for the first time at Norbulingka Institute. A touring exhibition starts Feb 20, 2017 and will continue traveling in the US and internationally.
Embracing Compassion is a social enterprise dedicated to sharing the insights and values of universal inclusiveness and interdependence.
