Join Khenpo Karma Jamyang Gyaltsen in conversation with David Germano, as he discusses the relationship of meditation and philanthropy in the modern world. 

Khenpo Karma Jamyang Gyaltsen is a senior teacher at the Larung Gar Buddhist Institute in Serthar, Sichuan, part of the Tibetan area known as Golok. He is currently one of the main teachers at Larung Gar, which is the largest Tibetan monastic institution in the world. He is the director of training in the Kagyu tradition there and was designated by the 17th Karmapa, head of the Karma Kagyu tradition, to oversee the reconstruction of monasteries in eastern Tibet.  
 
Khenpo actively creates links between Tibetan Buddhism and philanthropic initiatives, such as launching the Loving Kindness Foundation in 2011.  It focuses on the education of children in poverty-stricken areas, medical care, and care for people with disabilities.  In 2014, Khenpo set up a second foundation – the Beijing Loving Blessing Foundation. Its goals are to “benefit mankind with compassion and bring blessings and wisdom to people’s lives.”
