Je Tsongkapay Ling Buddhist College, being a charitable company, regards itself as an international community of Kyosang Rinpoche’s disciples, followers, and friends all over the world.

Any individual or organization may apply for membership in case of agreement with the Moral Guidelines that are as follows:

[1] Tolerance is not the way to solve social or spiritual problems. It shall be replaced by either compassion towards those who suffer and are in need, or by counteracting evil deeds and intentions

[2] Men and women have different spiritual qualities and features.

[3] Facilitating children’s sexual development does harm to their spiritual development.

[4] Only a partnership of a man and a woman who both avoid sexual misconduct and adultery can be seen as a true marriage.

[5] Faithful people shall make efforts to make social life better.

[6] We shall not approve the free choice of any person if this choice leads to evil deeds, words, or thoughts. We shall counteract this choice.

[7] Religion still may gain back its spiritual and social influence if had once.

[8] No worldly power, institution, or regime may be regarded as a supreme ethical authority. Only Religion is a trustful source of knowledge of what is Good and what is Evil.

The Eight Moral Guidelines rely on Kyosang Rinpoche’s books and oral teachings. They were elaborated by his disciples and approved at the general meeting, held on September 6, 2015.
