Our Center

PADMA SHEDRUP LING is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhist Dharma based on the teachings of Padmasambhava, who established Buddhism in Tibet during the 8th century. These teachings focus on cultivating wisdom and compassion through the practice of meditation.

  • We provide instruction and opportunities for people to practice meditation and study Tibetan Buddhist sacred texts and traditional ceremonies.
  • The center was founded in 1987 by the Venerable Chhoje Rinpoche, the organization’s Spiritual Director and President of the Board of Directors.
  • Padma Shedrup Ling was incorporated as a 501c3 tax deductible non-profit organization in 1989.
  • All contributions go directly to supporting the spiritual work of the organization. (There are no paid employees or administrators.)
  • The center actively supports the activities and well-being of traditional Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and nunneries in India, Tibet, and Nepal.
  • Padma Shedrup Ling also supports the performance of traditional ceremonies that maintain the pure tradition of the teachings.
