False Fundraising Alert

Published on 05 December 2016

It has been brought to our attention that people are claiming to raise funds for Chökyi Gyatso Institute (CGI) in Dewathang, Bhutan by selling Guru Rinpoche statues (see photo). Please be advised that such activity has absolutely no relationship with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche or any of his organizations.
Rinpoche has said repeatedly in announcements and teachings that he has never been involved in such commercial activities nor does he solicit donations for any of his monasteries. Please do not let your generosity and compassion be taken advantage of. Please contact Khyentse Foundation (‪‬) or Siddhartha's Intent ( directly for clarification, if you encounter any suspicious fundraising activities.
