Mangalam Buddhist Research Center traces its roots to India in 1962, when exiled Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku, trained by some of the most renowned masters of the Tibetan Buddhist lineage, founded Dharma Mudranalaya to print texts in the Tibetan language. In 1968, Tarthang Tulku relocated to America and founded the Tibetan Nyingma Meditation Center (TNMC), a Buddhist church, and re-established Dharma Mudranalaya. Since that time, he has founded dozens of other organizations and projects worldwide.
Dharma Publishing has produced more than 20 Buddhist translations and over 100 titles in English. These titles in turn have been translated into 18 different languages.
In 1981, Dharma Publishing produced the Nyingma Edition of the Tibetan Buddhist Canon in 120 volumes; in 1983, an eight volume Research Catalog and Bibliography of the Canon was published. In 1991, Great Treasures of Ancient Teachings, the first-ever compilation of works of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, was published in 627 atlas-sized volumes.
In 1972, the Nyingma Institute was established in Berkeley. The Institute has offered classes and programs designed to introduce Buddhism to the Western world to well over 100,000 people.

Plantando a semente do Kum Nye – a yoga tibetana – o Instituto desabrochou nesses 20 anos em uma flor de muitas pétalas, um campo de atividade criativa que espelha o caminho da transmissão do Dharma, os ensinamentos do Buddha. Nessas duas décadas tem recebido reconhecimento pela qualidade de seus programas.
