About Dorje Ling

Located on a serene property above Portland's Forest Park, Dorje Ling is a center and a resource for those who wish to engage in meditation and the exploration of the wisdom tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

Dorje Ling is a dharma center in the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. We study and practice the Dudjom lineage according to guidance from Gyatrul Rinpoche, who passed away in May 2023, and in association with his other centers.

Originally founded in 1980 by Dudjom Rinpoche Jigdrel Yeshe Dorje and Gyatrul Rinpoche, the center was supported and guided by Gelong Jampal Gyatso, Clark Hansen, from 1989 until his passing in May of 2021. Dorje Ling is now being hosted by Matthew Small, who has been a student of Gyatrul Rinpoche for the last 44 years.

Our core Ngondro practice is offered in person and on zoom on Sundays at 11:00. We also offer puja practices following the traditional Tibetan lunar cycle, a book study group, and a weekly meditation practice.  Check the Events page and our calendar, watch this website, sign up for our newsletters, and/or contact us for further information.
