Khyenkong Tharjay Buddhist Charitable Society
Khyenkong Tharjay Buddhist Charitable Society is a Buddhist Organization founded by H.E. Beru Khyentse Rinpoche in November 2004, beginning with twelve founding members. The Society was officially registered on 6 July 2005.
The name 'Khyenkong' derives from the names of both Khyentse Rinpoche and Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche respectively. During the late Jamgon Kongtrul's life, both him and Beru Khyentse Rinpoche were best Dharma friends and mutually relied on each other. Therefore, the name Khyenkong remains a precious remembrance of their unchanging relationship.
The name 'Tharjay' was the name taken from the monastery Pal Karmey Chode Dongak Shedrup Thubten Tharjay Chokhorling, which was named by His Holiness, the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa.
