is the UK branch of the International Nyingmapa Rigdzin Community founded in 2002 by Rigdzin Namkha Gyatso Rinpoche, an eminent tulku of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism and holder of the Dujom Tersar lineage.
The UK association was created in 2014, by a small group of Namkha Rinpoche's disciples. The main goal of the association is to give access to the holy teachings and practices of the Nyingma school—the oldest tradition of Tibetan Buddhism— in the aspects of Sutra, Tantra and Dzogchen.
Our aim is to support the learning and practice of the Dudjom Tersar lineage. The "New Treasures of Dudjom" is the collection of termas revealed by Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904) and Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987). Its precise, direct and concise practices are particularly suited to our contemporary world.
On top of performing monthly tsok, an important Vajrayana offering and purification practice, we regularly get together to practice the Troma Nagmo chöd and other pujas.
Throughout the year, we invite experienced practitioners and teachers who guide weekends of teachings and practice.
Our UK Events
We are fortunate to be guided by two close disciples of Namkha Rinpoche: Tulku Tenzin Dorjee from Serta Larung Gar monastery, and Rigdzin Sangye Dorje, Namkha Rinpoche's representative, who has been following and serving him for 20 years.
