  • Support the New Meditation Hall at Yeshe Tsogyal House

    As of February 2014 we have raised $67,000 towards our start-up goal of $100,000 in order to secure financing and begin construction on our new temple and sangha house renovation, which will probably coast $250,000. Please continue to support this important project in 2014! More Information...

Because Padmasambhava Buddhist Center is a member-supported organization, we rely on the generosity of our friends and sangha members. You are invited to join and become a member of our worldwide dharma family at PBC.
