SKẎ is short for ‘Sorig Khang International’. It was formed as legal nonprofit foundation based in Germany on October 25, 2016 with the mission to preserve and promote Sowa Rigpa.

In the lunar calendar the foundation’s birthdate translates into the Dakini Day (25th) of the Fire Pig month (8th) in the Guru Rinpoche or Fire Monkey year (2143).

The name ‘Sorig Khang’ is constituted of ‘Sorig’, short for ‘Sowa Rigpa’, and ‘Khang’, which means ‘center’ or ‘academy’.

Sowa Rigpa is the native name for Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM) or Himalayan Medicine – as we prefer to call it to avoid any cultural or political arguments.
