Namdroling Tibetan Buddhist Center Namdroling Tibetan Buddhist Center in Bozeman, Montana is dedicated to the Palyul tradition of Vajrayana Nyingma Tibetan Buddhism. Namdrolingâ€™s guiding principle is that of Bodhicitta, or loving kindness and concern for others, as we realize that self-liberation is gained by bringing benefit to all living beings. Our aspiration is to nurture and strengthen our community by studying, practicing, and living the Dharma, and helping the greater community through acts of service and by sharing the Dharma with all who are interested. The NamchÃ¶ teachings are known as â€œSpace Treasuresâ€. Although the NamchÃ¶ preliminary practice is very deep and profound, it is clear and easy for all to practice. A foundational practice of Tibetan Buddhism, by accomplishing this practice, one can realize the nature of the mind. With the Nam ChÃ¶ NgÃ¶ndro, we can develop loving-kindness for all beings and devotion, trust, confidence, diligence, and perseverance in our spiritual path. These teachings, including the preliminary practice, were revealed in the 11th Century by the TertÃ¶n Migyur Dorje who received them from Avalokitesvara, and have been passed down from master to student through the centuries. The blessings of the Palyul lineage are pure and unbroken.
