The Tibetan Community of New York & New Jersey

The Tibetan Community of New York & New Jersey (TCNYNJ) is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organisation focused on supporting the survival of Tibetan culture and identity, and to enhance the quality of life for all Tibetans living in the local community and worldwide.

We offer our support of Tibetan-based educational, cultural and religious programs, while also reaching out to community members in need. While we are committed to building strong relationships within the Tibetan community through organizing events that will allow members to connect and reach out to one another, we also embrace our relationships outside the community through creating and organizing awareness campaigns.

In addition, we believe that:

  • The continuity of Tibetan faith and identity is paramount.
  • Tibet belongs to Tibetans, and is the home of Tibetan Buddhism and a zone of peace.
  • It is incumbent upon all Tibetans to help one another and to support the community and its members must maintain the teachings of His Holiness The Dalai Lama, with particular emphasis on kindness and compassion.
  • We must appreciate and accept diversity in our community.
  • It is important to generate awareness of Tibetís dire situation and work tirelessly to seek help from outside the community.
