Gar Drolma Buddhist Center

Our doors are open. We welcome all who are interested in learning more about Buddhism.

“What does it mean to study Buddhism? It means that you cultivate a mind of love and compassion for others.” – His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche

Perhaps the greatest gift we can give ourselves to enrich our lives is to enhance our lovingkindness and compassion. At Gar Drolma, through the kindness of our Spiritual Director Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche and Spiritual Founder His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, we study traditional Tibetan Buddhist teachings, meditations and practices that were developed to help us do just that.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced practitioner, you will find programs for all levels, including a Learning Buddhism class taught by local senior students. Also, every weekend, we offer teachings and practices led by Khenpo Samdup. When he is traveling to other centers, we continue to gather at Gar Drolma and join his teachings and practices online. Our programs can vary throughout the year, so please check our schedule.
