Jonang Foundation is a nonprofit support organization, informational network, and online resource for the Jonang Tibetan Buddhist tradition. We host educational and research-based initiatives that preserve, sustain, and enliven this distinctive lineage within contemporary contexts.
Working with the living Jonang tradition inside Tibet and within the international community, the specific purposes of Jonang Foundation are to uphold and promote understanding of the intellectual, creative, and spiritual heritage of the Jonang. Our vision is for greater preservation, education, translation, documentation, and revivification for the Jonangpa, and our work is to provide these services.
Thought to be extinct, and only recently appearing to the world beyond Tibet, the Jonang comprises its own unique tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Isolated for centuries in the remote valleys of far eastern Tibet, the Jonangpa are the primary lineage-holders of the Kalachakra's 6-fold vajrayoga and zhentong meditative view.

We have released the teaser clip for our Jonang Nuns Project. This project was setup in 2007 in order to provide care and greater support for Tibetan women practitioners of the Jonang tradition in Tibet. The video was taken and edited by our collaborator on this project, Jessica Benjamin. Please take a look,
