Welcome to Drikung Namgyal Ling – a Drikung Kagyu Buddhist Center

Welcome to Drikung Namgyal Ling!

As many of you already know, we recently had the great good fortune of Hosting His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche in May.  We would like to say thank you to all who attended and we send a special thanks to those who helped us to organize, set up, and break down, and many other tasks and generosities.  We are humbled by your kindness.  His Holiness was pleased by all the attendees, eager to learn the authentic Buddha-Dharma.

For these summer months we will continue the weekly practices, White Tara on Wednesday, and Sunday Practice and Potluck.  Please see our calendar for details on these practices, which are open to all.

Regarding out teaching schedule, Khenpo Yeshi Rinpoche will come to Tucson in July, and our own Drupon Thinley Ningpo will return in August.  Please see our calendar for more information.  We are still working out Drupon’s schedule.  Below are some dates and details on Khenpo Yeshi’s upcoming teaching.

How you can help:

DNL took possession of the Sahuarita property in October of 2015 and we are working toward raising monies for the monthly expenses and for the eventual purchase of the property.  You are welcome to help us though generosity and through perseverance of effort (2 of the 6 perfections).  Our membership program is a corner stone of our fundraising effort.  You may join on line:


We also invite you to donate time.  Now having property, we will need continued help with cleaning, repairing, yard work, etc.  If you have an interest or skill that you would like to offer, we want to hear from you.  Please contact us at:
