Based in Christchurch, New Zealand, Rigdrol Yeshe Buddhist Institute is a centre where authentic teachings of the Karma Kagyu Buddhist lineage are taught, practiced and supported. The principal teacher in this lineage is the Gyalwang Karmapa.
The emphasis is on the cultivation of insight and compassion in formal meditation and daily life - via traditional methods that remain just as relevant for spiritual practice in the modern world.
So if you want to live more calmly, with greater kindness, insight and purpose, Rigdrol Yeshe Buddhist Institute can provide an environment that supports you.
We meditate and study Buddhist philosophy under the guidance of Venerable Lama Assi, who visits Christchurch on a regular basis.
