The Center for Dzogchen Studies, Located in New Haven, Connecticut, is dedicated to the teachings and practices of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhsim. Our mother house is Gonjang Monastery in Gangtok, Sikkim.

In the ordained Ngakphang, or tantric White-Robed lineage. Teachings are given from the perspective where everyday experience is embraced as a precious opportunity to realize one's own true Nature. Through this process, one discovers that the awakened state of absolute peace, compassion, and wisdom already exists within.
