About Us

Be sure to read the Venerable Khenpo Rinpoches’ full biographies.

The Khenpo Rinpoche’s first began teaching in Tennessee in 1987, and in 1990 Padmasambhava Buddhist Center of Tennessee was established. Now one of region’s largest Tibetan Dharma groups, we meet regularly at the PBC Yeshe Tsogyal Temple in Nashville, and hold annual retreats led by Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche in Nashville and at Padma Gochen Ling, our retreat center outside of Monterey, Tennessee.

We would sincerely like to express our many thanks for the generosity and commitment of our Sangha members and friends in supporting the Venerable Khenpo Rinpoches’ vision of compassion and wisdom in Tennessee and around the world.
