Odiyana Clinic

As with any developing region of the world, access to high-quality healthcare services is of concern for many people in the Ruksin area of India, home to Tibetan ex-patriot community. The TibetanAid Foundation has partnered with the Odiyana Charitable Soceity (an Indian nonprofit) headed by Tulku Rinpoche. The project is building a small but well-equipped clinic that will make such care available to the public at little or no charge.

There will be a traditional Tibetan physician in residence, who can provide holistic diagnosis and treatment according to this ancient wisdom tradition. Additionally, modern “Western” medicine will be delivered by skilled visiting doctors and nurses from India and abroad. If you are a medical professional and are interested in offering services on a volunteer basis, we would love to hear from you. Please reach out to us.

The Rinpoche’s vision for the Odiyana Project embodies the motto, “Think globally, act locally.” It is a big vision, and it is no easy task to bring it to fruition, but the Rinpoche knows from his many successful projects in the East and the West, that with pure motivation and steady, unwavering effort, it is definitely possible to make this vision a reality.

Buddhism teaches that everything exists in dependence upon causes and conditions. We invite you to be part of the causes and conditions that bring the Odiyana Project into full manifestation. With the Odiyana Clinic, we intend to benefit countless families of the Ruksin area of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, and the benefits will ripple out to all living beings!
