Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Meditation Center Cooperstown NY

Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Meditation Center or Gomde Cooperstown is dedicated to the study of meditation and Tibetan Buddhism. We offer weekly meditation and Buddhism classes as well as longer term practice opportunities during our summer retreats. Situated on 25 acres in the rolling hills of upstate NY, the natural beauty of our surroundings provides a perfect backdrop for our study and practice of meditation and the Tibetan Buddhism wisdom tradition. Here, each of us practices to develop compassion, both for others and for ourselves.

Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Meditation Center is a year round teaching and retreat center. Our spiritual directors are lineage holders in the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions, specifically the lineage of Chokgyur Lingpa: Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche and Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche.
