Katsel Monastery Restoration Project

Katsel Monastery in Tibet is an ancient treasure built in the 7th century. Nyedak Rinpoche must relocate and restore Katsel as local blasting into the mountain rock has endangered it's stability.  Our sister sangha of great cultural and religious significance needs our help! Lama Sonam requests we contribute to  Rinpoche's efforts.

If you'd like to make this a memorium please e-mail a note. Thank you for your generosity!

The Drikung Meditation Center, Tibetan Buddhism in the Boston Area

The Drikung Meditation Center is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation center located in Arlington, Massachusetts (in the metro Boston area) that is dedicated to the practice and study of the Buddha’s teachings as preserved in the Drikung Kagyu lineage. We are a Vajrayana Buddhist center that is a branch of Tibet’s famous Katsel monastery, and are a Tibetan Buddhist pilgrimage site featuring an “emanation replica” of the famous Jowo Rinpoche statue in Lhasa, Tibet. U.S. Drikung Jowo Rinpoche is the main feature of this pilgrimage site. For more information on the U.S. Jowo Rinpoche and pilgrimage site, visit Jokhang.org.

We host a variety of great spiritual masters throughout the year and make their teachings available to the greater Boston community. We welcome anyone and everyone to come and join us for the Dharma. We are here to serve the community and to bring the happiness and joy of the Buddhist teachings to everyone who is interested.

The Four Immeasurable Wishes of Buddhism
Love: May all mother sentient beings, boundless as the sky, have happiness and the causes of happiness.
Compassion: May they be liberated from suffering and the causes of suffering. Bliss: May they never be separated from the happiness which is free from sorrow. Equanimity: May they rest in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion.
