The Tibet CenterNew York
Founded in 1975 by the Reverend Khyongla Rato Rinpoche, a scholar and reincarnate lama of the Gelugpa order of Tibetan Buddhism, The Tibet Center provides a place where members and the general public can explore Buddhist teachings and practices as well as those of other faith communities.
Currently at The Tibet Center, the Reverend Khyongla Rato Rinpoche and Rato Khen Rinpoche Nicholas Vreeland offer weekly classes in Buddhist practice and theory. Ancient Indian and Tibetan texts are taught alongside methods of integrating them into daily meditation and practice. Visiting masters regularly offer Buddhist teachings. The Tibet Center / Kunkhyab Thardo Ling also hosts weekend seminars, mediations and retreats.
