Drepung Loseling is dedicated to the study and preservation of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of wisdom and compassion. A center for the cultivation of both heart and intellect, it provides a sanctuary for the nurturance of inner peace and kindness, community understanding, and global healing. In implementing this vision, Drepung Loseling has two main objectives:
To contribute to North American and Western culture by providing theoretical knowledge and practical training in Tibetan Buddhist scholarly traditions for Western students, scholars and the general public; and
To help preserve the endangered Tibetan culture, which today leads a fragile existence in the exiled refugee communities in India and Nepal.

Help Us complete our dream of "A Little Tibet in Atlanta"
To fulfill our vision of preserving Tibet's unique culture and sharing Tibet's spiritual traditions in North America, we started creating our “Little Tibet” in Atlanta with the Center that His Holiness the Dalai Lama inauguarated in 2007. To complete our dream and provide long term stability of our center's facilities and programs, we need to have a residence for our resident and visiting teachers and monks of the Mystical Arts of Tibet tours next door or within walking distance of the Center.
