Ligmincha International is a worldwide network of centers and sanghas founded by Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. Serenity Ridge, a year-round retreat center located in Nelson County, Virginia, USA, is the headquarters of Ligmincha International.
This nonprofit organization was founded in 1992 as Ligmincha Institute in order to preserve the ancient teachings, transmissions and practices of the Bön Buddhist tradition of Tibet. As the indigenous religion of Tibet and one of the world's most ancient unbroken spiritual traditions, the Bön tradition has a rich and unique heritage. Toward achieving this goal Ligmincha aims to introduce these traditions in an authentic manner to the Western world, in such a way that they remain beneficial when integrated into modern Western culture. The organization name was changed to Ligmincha International in 2014 to reflect the expansion of the organization worldwide.

Buddha Eyes or Wisdom Eyes are often found painted on the Stupas of Tibetan Buddhism, this symbol represents the all seeing eyes of the Buddha, a symbol of the omnipresent compassion of the Bodhisattvas. The small dot depicted between the eyes represents the third eye, a symbol of spiritual awakening. The curious squiggle below the eyes is the Sanskrit numeral one, symbolizing the unity of all things.

Compassion - Tibetan Calligraphy by His Holiness The 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje
C O M P A S S I O N
Compassion is the very essence of a spiritual life, and the main practice of those who have devoted their lives to attaining enlightenment. It is the root of the Three Jewels – Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. It is the root of Buddha because all Buddhas are born from compassion. It is the root of Dharma because Buddhas give Dharma teachings motivated solely by compassion for others. It is the root of Sangha, because it is by listening to and practising Dharma teachings given out of compassion that we become Sangha, or Superior beings.
"We need to let the heart lead. Compassion is indispensable; it is the single most important factor we need if we are going to have any real success in protecting the environment, in creating a just society, or simply in living wholesome, happy lives."

The Heart Essence Syllable
Hung means indivisibility, or something which cannot be torn apart. It holds both wisdom and method and this cannot be broken or divided. It is a reminder that each one of us has purity within us, we just have to go through the paths to enlightenment to uncover it and erase all impurities from ourselves.
"OM is like the sun, but HUM is like the soil, into which the sun's rays must descend in order to awaken the dormant life."
Lama Anagarika Govinda
