Rangjung Yeshe Gomde

Dzogchen Meditation and Retreat Center

Located in the forested mountains of Northern California, Rangjung Yeshe Gomde is a center in the Chokling Tersar lineage of Tibetan Buddhism under the spiritual direction of Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche. Gomde California’s diverse programs present the complete Buddhist path as found in the foundational teachings of the Buddha, the Mahayana teachings on emptiness and compassion, and the profound instructions of the Vajrayana.  Our remote, beautiful land offers the perfect environment for both new students and long-time practitioners to deepen their understanding of the Buddha’s teachings through study, contemplation, and meditation.
