About Samye Hermitage New York

Samye Hermitage New York, formerly called Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Meditation Center, was founded in 2008 by Tibetan Buddhist Teachers Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, and Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche. Samye NY is now developing into a thriving teaching and retreat center with meditation classes offered several times per week throughout the year.

From May to September we offer more intensive workshops and retreat programs taught by the spiritual head of Samye Hermitage New York, Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche, and other visiting teachers.
