About Buddhist Meditation Center Dechen Ling
DECHEN LING, in Ashland, Oregon, provides opportunities to study and contemplate the teachings of the Buddha, as transmitted by the Nyingmapa Lineage. We are the official, in-town center for Tashi Choling Center for Buddhist Studies, directed by Ven. Gyatrul Rinpoche. Tashi Choling is located 30 minutes from downtown Ashland, in the Colestine Valley (Tashi Cholingâ€™s website). Dechen Ling offers classes and practice groups to a wide range of students, from beginners to advanced practitioners. Dechen Ling was incorporated in 1994 as a non-profit tax exempt corporation by Lama Yeshe Nyima, and has been at its present location since 2005. Dechen Ling is currently open during scheduled class times only.
WHAT WE OFFER: Study and practice groups led by teachers and senior students authorized to teach by the Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche. See our Events page for current information.
