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.
