About Dorje Ling

Located on a serene property above Portland's Forest Park, Dorje Ling is 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 of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. We study and practice the Dudjom lineage under the direction of Gyatrul Rinpoche 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.

We have been offering Ngondro (preliminary) practice and introductory teachings on Zoom on Sundays, since the summer of 2020, and we are now offering a hybrid Sunday practice, in person and on zoom. We also offer puja practices following the traditional Tibetan lunar cycle. Check our calendar, watch this website, or contact us for further information.
