Kunpen is a Tibetan word meaning “benefit for all beings.” Founded by Lama Gangchen Rinpoche in 1989, the Association was recognised by the Italian State as a Buddhist religious organisation, following the signing of an agreement with the official register of religious organisations. Its aims are the study and dissemination of teachings on non-formal education to develop inner peace, the techniques of NgalSo Tantric Self-Healing, the art of Tibetan healing science and Buddhist philosophy and psychology.

The Association is a founding member of the Italian Buddhist Union and is part of the Forum of Religions in Milan which brings together the representatives of the five great spiritual traditions.

The Association also plays a coordinating role in the activities of all the centres and international organisations founded by Lama Gangchen, including the Lama Gangchen World Peace Foundation (a non-governmental organisation affiliated with the United Nations).
