The Karmapa International Buddhist Institute (KIBI) originates from the wish of His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje who was the spritual leader of the Kagyu school. He formed a trust named Karmapa Charitable Trust in 1961 with the help of the then political officer Mr. Appapant in Gangtok, Sikkim in order to expand his effort to develop Buddhism in India.
KIBI is situated in the south of New Delhi, the capital of the Buddhism's country of origin, within the peaceful Qutab Institutional Area. It is the proper surrounding for KIBI, which aims to combine the best of both the ancient Buddhist and the modern scientific tradition.
