We’re pleased to announce that Khenpo Samdup is introducing a sponsored puja program at Gar Drolma. Through this program, individuals can request and sponsor a puja.

 "In order to benefit the community, Gar Drolma Dharma Center in Ohio is offering rituals, puja and prayer, to "assist with" the purification of negative "factors" and the generation of positive, favorable conditions. I will always pray that the negative circumstances, hindrances, and obstacles of the ritual benefactors be pacified andtheir wishes be
accomplished spontaneously."
~H.E. Garchen Rinpoche

Gar Drolma Buddhist Center was founded in 2002 by His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, a high lama in the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.

The center has authentic Buddhist teachers, both local and visiting,
who represent an authentic and unbroken lineage of Buddhist training.

We offer many weekly programs which are intended to assist IN the spiritual development of experienced practitioners as well as new students.
