Lion’s Roar Dharma Center and Do Nga Dargey Temple follow the Buddha Dharma – a new humanism that embraces both the secular and sacred paths of transformation. We recognize and affirm the inherent and indestructible goodness of all beings.
We are in the tradition of the His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. Our Temple was founded by Geshe Losang Gyatso and is directed by Lama Yeshe Jinpa and Geshe Damchoe Gurjav. Our Heart Lineage Teacher is Kyabje Jhado Tulku Rinpoche.
