Welcome to Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Meditation Center, Cooperstown NY
Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Meditation Center is situated amid the scenic rolling hills of central New York. This natural beauty provides a perfect space for the study and practice of meditation derived from the Buddhist teachings. Each of us is encouraged to develop compassion, both for others and for ourselves, through these practices.
Founded in 2008 by Tibetan Buddhist Teachers Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche and Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche, Rangjung Yeshe Gomde is developing into a thriving teaching and retreat center.
Meditation classes are offered several times per week throughout the year. From May to September we offer more intensive workshops and retreat programs taught by the spiritual head of Gomde Cooperstown, Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche and other visiting teachers.
We are very excited to open the registrations for our programs this summer at Gomde Cooperstown with our dear teachers Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche and Tulku Mingmar Tsering.
This year is a very special year for us, as we will also be celebrating our 10th Anniversary! We will be having a celebration on Sunday July 15th, during the Mahamudra Retreat. If you wish to come only for the day, you are welcome to join us!
As we have done in the past, we will continue the Mahamudra and Nine Yanas Programs, and also have new programs with precious opportunities for study and practice.
We will need many hearts and hands with us to prepare for our programs and we would like to invite anyone with genuine interest in the dharma to apply and come to volunteer at Gomde this summer. Our programs rely on the generosity of people that share their time and knowledge with us. This year we need extra help from early June to late August. Volunteers receive room and board and can attend to part or all of the programs, depending on how much time they can commit to volunteer. Please consider this opportunity to create merit and facilitate that others can attend the teachings. Contact us at [email protected]
