2020 Social Responsibility Project

Books are one of the best gifts we can give to others since a wise man once said: wisdom is the key to ultimate happiness.

Every year Tibet Travelers will focus on sharing some portion of tour profit with the locals. In 2019, we had successfully done the project of giving warm winter jackets to the students near Mount Everest. 

Tibet Travelers 2020 Social Responsibility Project

Now in the year 2020, Tibet Travelers company offered 180 wisdom books to one hundred eighty nuns at Tidrum nunnery. 

A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life 

The name of the book is A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life root text by great master Shantideva from Nalanda University during the eighth century. Shantideva is among the most renowned and esteemed figures in the entire history of Mahayana Buddhism.

Commentary by great Dzogchen master Dza Patrul Rinpoche's disciple Khenpo Khunphel.

A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life is the most profound book of arising Bodhichitta. Bodhicitta is a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment motivated by great compassion for all sentient beings, accompanied by a falling away of the attachment to the illusion of an inherently existing self.
