Rangjung Yeshe Gomde California is a Tibetan Buddhist center under the spiritual direction of Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche dedicated to preserving, transmitting, and translating the complete Buddhist path, and cultivating scholar-practitioners within a pristine natural environment. We support the cultivation of a complete understanding and the direct experience of the Buddhist teachings for the benefit of all beings by providing an environment and community where the Dharma can take root and flourish in North America.
Gomde’s board, staff, and volunteers put in countless hours of dedicated work to fulfill our mission. With the exception of the resident staff, cooks and translators, and a handful of summer program staff, everyone who works at Gomde is a volunteer. Opportunities to offer service at Gomde are always available; if you’d like to join the crew, please visit our Staff and Volunteer Positions page.
