WELCOME

A Jewel of Living Dharma

 

For over 20 years, The Drikung Meditation Center has offered Tibetan Buddhist teachings, practices and retreats to all levels of spiritual practitioners - from curious beginner to experienced meditator - right here in the Boston area.. 

 

We are home to the only emanation replica of the sacred Jowo Rinpoche statue outside of the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa Tibet! The Jowo statue is considered a living Buddha, a very holy object of immense beauty and profound blessings. Our Jowo statue is not only an exact replica, it is a spirtual emanation of Jowo Rinpoche himself. Learn about the Jowo Rinpoche Statue HERE.

 

Under the guidance of our spiritual director, Venerable Lama Konchok Sonam, our mission has been to serve the community in a spirit of loving kindness, fostering understanding between all religions, cultures and people.

Wonderful News: A New Center!

 

The Drikung Meditation Center is now also home to the US Jokhang Temple! We have obtained a mortgage on a property in Danvers, MA!

 

This was only possible due to the enormous generosity of the community and everyone's profound merit and aspirations. Emaho! Lama Sonam's longtime dream of establishing a Jokhang Temple here in the US is one very large step closer to fruition! 

The Capital Campaign - 5 Year Plan.

 

While this momentous occasion is most definitely a cause for celebration we will continue to work together as a community to pay off the balance owed in the 5 year window before the interest rate increases. Therefore we have introduced the Capital Campaign to meet this goal. 

If you or someone you know can help secure the US JokhangTemple for future generations

EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Nyungne Retreat with Venerable Lama Kelsang

September 22, 7:00pm - September 25th, 9:30am EDT

Nyungne is a profound purification practice, a length of time, 2+ days, is especially helpful for people whose schedules cannot accommodate long-term retreat. It involves prostrations and the keeping of strict vows; the second day, Sunday, is devoted to complete silence and fasting of water as well as food. The meditation centers on the recitations, mantras, and guided visualizations of the Thousand-Armed Chenrezig, the embodiment of all the buddhas’ loving-kindness and compassion. Translated as “abiding in the fast,” Nyungne is said to be effective in the healing of illness, the nurturing of compassion, and the purification of negative karma.
