ABOUT US

Orgyen Tsogyal Ling is the UK branch of the International Nyingmapa Rigdzin Community founded by Namkha Rinpoche. Our aim is to support the study and practice of Vajrayana Buddhism, and the Dudjom Tersar lineage in particular.

"Fish play in water, 
Birds play in the sky, 
Ordinary beings play on the earth, 
Sublime beings play in display"

Special Events

Over the years, the Rigdzin Community has been blessed to receive some of the greatest masters of our times, representing all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. 

The community regularly organises special events such as retreats with guest Lamas, or larger public teachings and conferences.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama, 2009

In 2009, the Dalai Lama gave two days of teachings and empowerments in Lausanne, Switzerland.

In the summer 2019, the Rigdzin Community had the immense fortune of receiving His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche Sangye Pema Shepa, main holder of the Dudjom Tersar lineage and reincarnation of His Holiness Dudjom Jigdrel Yeshe Dorje.

His Holiness visited and blessed both our centres in Switzerland and in the south of Spain, by giving precious empowerments and transmissions from the Dudjom Tersar.
