Welcome! The Tibetan word jhamtse (jhaam'-tsay) means "love and compassion," the cornerstone of the work of Jhamtse International.

What is Jhamtse International?

Ten years ago, Venerable Lobsang Phuntsok, a Buddhist monk from the Tawang region of northeast India, came to the US and started Jhamtse Buddhist Center, five communities in Massachusetts studying and practicing the Mahayana Buddhist tradition of love, compassion, and wisdom. On this foundation, Jhamtse Gatsal, a school in remote northeast India, gives children in need a chance to thrive and learn.
