In 1982, the Palpung Sherabling Environment and Wildlife Preservation and Propagation Voluntary Organization was spontaneously founded by the 12th Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa. It has now formally established itself to serve the ecosystem of this planet with the aim of further refining and extending its activity. The focus is to set a Mandala as an example to humanity demonstrating how we start in our own home then become global.
