WELCOME

The Garchen Buddhist Institute is a Tibetan Buddhist retreat and teaching center founded by His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche. It is rooted in the Drikung Kagyu tradition. The Garchen Buddhist Institute was created by Garchen Rinpoche to establish the Buddha Dharma in the West and to offer opportunities for extended meditation practice for all practitioners.

Join us in accumulating White Tara mantras for the Long Life and continued Excellent Health of our beloved guru, H.E. Garchen Rinpoche.

TEMPORARILY CLOSED

On March 8th, after careful consideration, H.E. Garchen Rinpoche decided to temporarily close the Garchen Buddhist Institute in Arizona. This decision is for the protection of each and every one of us and our many connections, near and far, from the uncertainties and risks of the global coronavirus epidemic. 

We care deeply about the health of everyone and will continue to offer the Dharma teachings, prayers and practices online through our livestream YouTube channel.

Sending heartfelt prayers and love for everyone’s well being!
