Lama Choedak Rinpoche
Rongton Buddhist Centre is a not for profit organisation, and part of a national network of centres established under the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, with Lama Choedak Rinpoche as its spiritual head. Established in 2004, the Rongton Buddhist Centre was named after a celebrated 15th century Tibetan Buddhist scholar Rongton Sheja Kunrig, who also founded the renowned Nalendra monastry outside Tibet's capital, Lhasa.
Our centre offers a weekly teaching & practice schedule, including classes in Introduction to Calm Abiding Meditation, for those who wish to discover and develop their inner potential. Calm Abiding Meditation requires no Buddhist commitment and is suitable for all.
"A life of only a single day spent in meditation conjoined with wisdom is better than living a hundred years unbalanced and confused."
- The Tibetan Dhammapada
Rongton Buddhist Centre hosts retreats and teachings by Lama Choedak Rinpoche throughout the year, as well as hosting visits by other highly qualified teachers within the Sakya tradition. We also warmly welcome teachers from all Buddhist traditions.
Please check "Noticeboard" for up and coming visits for 2014.
Monthly Quote :
"I feel that the essence of spiritual practice is your attitude toward others. When you have a pure, sincere motivation, then you have the right attitude toward others based on kindness, compassion, love and respect. Practice brings the clear realisation of the oneness of all human beings, and the importance of others benefitting by your actions."
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
