What we're about

The Guhyasamaja Center is a community of spiritual friends in the Washington DC area dedicated to the practice of Tibetan Buddhism. We follow the Gelugpa tradition, the same lineage as His Holiness The Dalai Lama.

Our Spiritual Director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, founded the center in 1994 as part of the worldwide Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (www.fpmt.org).

Whether you are new to Buddhism or a long-time student, we offer classes from FPMT's carefully designed curriculum to help you deepen your knowledge and establish your daily practice. Classes are informal and emphasize how to integrate Buddhism into daily life.
