Green Book Hours


TCNYNJ is the oldest Tibetan organization in the United States. We aspire to fulfill His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s vision to have a governing body to care of the needy and the less fortunate in the community; to groom future Tibetan leaders to represent Tibet and issues relating to the Tibetan cause and the people; and to work with Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) in promoting and maintaining the unique Tibetan culture, language and identity.
