Welcome to the Tibetan Meditation Center

The Tibetan Meditation Center was founded in 1982 by Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoché based on the Buddhist understanding that everyone has the ground of goodness and thus the potential and desire for achieving complete freedom and happiness. To actualize this vision, the center offers regular study and practice retreats, public lectures and short-courses as well as celebrations and ceremonies. Aside from the weekly programs and special events offered at our Frederick location, our Spiritual Director, Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin, also maintains an active travel schedule teaching at related centers and groups throughout North America.

The Center consists of a shrine hall, an adjoining house (with a small library, book/gift-store and residence of our spiritual director), a rock-garden replicating Milarepa’s cave and a stūpa. Visitors are welcome to join any of our events or just to come and enjoy the peace and serenity around our grounds.
