Teachings and Lineage
Dorje Ling was founded in 1980 by HH Dudjom Rinpoche and Gyatrul Rinpoche in Portland, Oregon.
Teachings and practices at Dorje Ling are guided by Ven. Gyatrul Rinpoche and other teachers of the Nyingma lineage. We offer teachings and training in meditation, foundational practices, generation stage practices, Phowa (transference of consciousness), and Tsoks (traditional Tibetan ceremonies done on a regular basis). In collaboration with other centers in the region, we also offer various kinds of retreats, drup chens, study of classical texts in the Tantric/Vajrayana tradition and teachings by lamas, senior practitioners, and monastics.
Our main center, Tashi Choling, is located outside Ashland, Oregon, and offers many additional opportunities for Dharma students to advance on the spiritual path. Please check out their site at www.tashicholing.org or visit their online book store at www.vimalatreasures.org.
