What we're about

We are an international community of Tibetan Buddhist practitioners, learning to be our kindest and most compassionate selves with the guidance of Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist master, scholar, and poet. Our roots reach back over a thousand years, to Guru Padmasambhava’s establishment of Buddhism in Tibet. Our founders, Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche and their father, Lama Chimed Namgyal, brought this tradition out of Tibet in the 1960s. Together, they worked to preserve the richness of Vajrayana Buddhism, first in India and later in America. They founded Padmasambhava Buddhist Center in the middle 1980s to preserve and spread the teachings of the Buddha in general, and especially the Nyingma School of Vajrayana (Tibetan) Buddhism and the lineage of Tsasum Lingpa.
Please join us for our weekly practice every Wednesday evening starting at 7pm at the Spiral Circle, 750 N. Thornton Ave., Orlando, FL 32803. Please bring cushions if you would like to sit on the floor. If you would like to learn more, please call me at 407-695-1297.
