The Pointing Out the Great Way Foundation is inspired by the work and vision of Daniel Brown, Ph.D. Our mission is to promote an exchange of gifts between East and West. The gifts from the East are the precious teachings of the Bon and Buddhist indo-Tibetan lineages. The Foundation acts as facilitator for these gifts through its support of meditation practices in the pointing-out method and the translation of sacred texts for the Western practitioner. For more about these these texts and practices, please visit www.pointingoutway.org.

At the same time that the teachings and practices are taking root in the West, however, these precious traditions are at risk of dying out in their places of origin. Our “gift in return” is to partner with our friends and mentors to preserve and revitalize these precious teachings in their indigenous settings. This aspect of our mission has taken us recently to the Mustang region of Nepal. Visit our projects page for more information.

We thank you in advance for your interest and support of this work.
