Spiritual Care Programme There is a recognized need in our society today for the development of more effective ways of meeting the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of people who are facing death or a serious illness.

Sogyal Rinpoche responded to the widely recognized need for more effective ways of meeting the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of people facing death and serious illness by founding the Spiritual Care Program in 1993, after the publication of his book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.
