ABOUT RIGPA

Rigpa is an international network of centres and groups offering the Buddha’s teachings in a way that is based on an authentic tradition, yet also relevant and beneficial for people in the modern world. Rigpa offers courses and seminars in meditation and compassion, as well as a complete path of study and practice for every stage of the Buddha’s teachings.

Rigpa was founded in 1979 by Sogyal Rinpoche, a Buddhist teacher from Tibet, who is also the author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. Rigpa has the gracious patronage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and each national Rigpa association has charitable and non-profit status.

    How Lerab Ling’s Management is Integrated with Rigpa’s Management Internationally

    Lerab Ling is represented on, and is an active participant in the executive and board-level bodies managing Rigpa internationally - international Board and the International Coordination Group (executive). Read more about the Rigpa Teams.

    The Rigpa Vision Board - Rigpa’s vision is to offer the Buddha’s teachings in a way that is based on an authentic tradition, yet also relevant and beneficial for people in the modern world. Rigpa offers courses and seminars in meditation and compassion, as well as a complete path of study and practice for every stage of the Buddha’s teachings. 

    The role of Rigpa’s Vision Board is to safeguard the spiritual integrity of Rigpa, helping to ensure all its activities remain true to its spiritual vision, values and culture. The Vision Board does this by listening closely to the members, working collaboratively with the rest of the organisation, and with the spiritual guidance of the lamas advising Rigpa.

    The advisory lamas - To maintain the authenticity of Rigpa's work, the Vision Board is advised by a number of eminent Tibetan Buddhist lamas including Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and Mindrolling Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche (both key figures in interpreting Tibetan Buddhism in the modern world), and Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche (a great scholar and lineage holder of the Ngagyur Nyingma tradition).
