Siddhartha’s Intent (SI) is an international collective of buddhist groups that began in Australia in 1986 with the formation of Siddhartha’s Intent Southern Door (now known as Siddhartha’s Intent Australia).
SI has since expanded with groups in all continents. Local SIs are officially registered in their respective countries as societies or charities founded with the sole intention of preserving and fostering the Buddhadharma. In more recent years, places have emerged that are not necessarily called 'Siddhartha’s Intent' but are affiliated with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche such as 'Almost Buddhist' in the People’s Republic of China.
All of the centers organize teachings and seminars with the wish to create a suitable environment in which the Buddhadharma may flourish. The achievement of this aim will increase the awareness of buddhist principles, surpassing the limits of cultures and traditions. Each independent SI region strives to fulfil Rinpoche’s wishes in its own unique way.
