Welcome to Drikung Namgyal Ling – a Drikung Kagyu Buddhist Center

Welcome to Drikung Namgyal Ling!  Here’s the latest news:

Welcome to Drikung Namgyal Ling and our Drikung Kagyu Center situated right outside of Tucson, in Sahuarita Arizona.  We are a devoted but casual and friendly group.  We welcome new comers and practitioners of all levels.

Practice Schedule:

We are adding a Ngondro Sunday to our practice schedule, on the third Sunday of each month.  With a regular Ngondro group practice and study opportunity , we hope benefit and support our community’s exposure and practice of these preliminaries.  Lord Jigten Summon, the father of our lineage, said: “ The Ngondro is even more important than the higher practices.One must truly understand and practice the simple yet profound foundational teachings before one begins the higher teachings.”  One practices the four extraordinary foundations, or the Vajrayana Ngondro, to purify the negative karma and obscurations of the mind, speech and body and to develop virtues.

We will also continue the weekly practices, White Tara on Wednesday located in Tucson, and Sunday Achi Practice and Potluck held at the center at.  Please see our calendar for details on these practices, which are open to all.  We are also adding a Wednesday mid-morning practice at the Sahuarita Center.  Loving Kindness and Natural Meditation will be from 1130-1230 with a fellowship sack lunch afterwards at the center on Wednesdays.
