The Xuanfa Institute is dedicated to helping Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike develop their spiritual practices so as to become enlightened and thus liberated from the sufferings of repeated rebirths. The Xuanfa Institute follows the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha and His teacher, Dorje Chang Buddha. We are in the process of developing a small temple and retreat center where people of many traditions and faiths can gather to study, learn, and practice these teachings. Even though we cannot yet offer formal classes or retreats, we would still like to offer basic meditation opportunities for those who are interested. Anyone who is interested in learning meditation so as to improve his or her health, develop concentration, and increase his or her inherent wisdom is welcome. Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche, the president of the Xuanfa Institute and a direct and close disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, will share her knowledge and insights gained from thirty years of meditation practice and experience.
