What is Vimala Treasures?

Tashi Choling, home of Vimala Treasures
Vimala is a non-profit organization devoted to propagating the sacred tradition of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism and the ancient Nyingma Lineage through the production and distribution of written texts, photographs, and audio-visual materials with the motivation to benefit all beings.

The name Vimala was chosen by the Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche. Vimala is a Sanskrit word meaning "stainless"; its Tibetan translation is dri med. Its connection with the widely revered and beloved Indian master Vimalamitra (dri med she nyen in Tibetan) is also particularly auspicious.

To serve our purpose of disseminating the Buddha's stainless teachings, Vimala is pleased to offer a wide collection of practices, teachings, and supports for practice which we hope will accommodate the needs of both new and advanced Dharma students. Our archives include teachings that date back more than thirty years, and they constantly grow as materials are added. All proceeds from the distribution of these materials support the continuation of this archival process.
