The MBA Project "is dedicated to the health and well-being of at-risk and incarcerated youth. They provide instruction in awareness-based techniques, including nonsectarian meditation and yoga, to facilitate mental health, stress reduction, anger management and self-discovery."

The Jindhag Foundation has a special relationship with the monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery. This monastery, which relocated to India after the invasion in 1959, now has a group of monks that tour the United States, which the Foundation hosts each holiday season in Santa Fe.

Seret and Son's


Ira and Sylvia Seret and their sons, co-founders of the Jindhag Foundation, own and operate the Santa Fe store Seret and Son’s. The store specializes in handcrafted rugs and fine furnishings from south and central Asia, and the idea for starting the Jindhag foundation grew out of their business as they feel that it is their duty to give back to the cultures with whom they work.

International Folk Art Market


In 2007, the Jindhag Foundation provided the funds to bring pottery from the revitalized village of Isatlif, Afghanistan to the International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe, NM. This was the first time that Istalif pottery was sold internationally and was a great success. The foundation plans to sponsor Istalif pottery again at the 2008 market.
