‘Without knowing anything, there can be no practice. Our study and practice will be like a lamp which illuminates the darkness, like the sun rising to light the morning.’ – Sang-ngag Rinpoche

The institute offers a rare opportunity for theoretical and meditation training in all levels of the Buddhist tradition.

Covid-19 Announcement

Coronavirus Announcement:
In accordance with the wishes of the supreme Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Tenzin Rinpoche and Namchak Khen Rinpoche, the Pema Traktung retreat from April 17-19 and the Yeshe Lama retreat from April 23-May 2 are both cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. 
It has also been decided that we will not be gathering this year for the Sangwa Yeshe Drupcho, nor will we be beginning a new/1st-year Shedra class as we had planned. For those of you who are in the 5th-year of the Shedra, we will be meeting online for a tsok feast and for a few days of online teachings to maintain the auspicious continuity of our group as we are forced to postpone until next year.
Warm wishes from all of us at the Buddha Garden.
