Together we can all be of support to one another and to all. Our hope is that Chenrezig Institute’s online program can be a source of inspiration to practice wisdom and compassion in these challenging times.

Please consider donating what you can today.  Your contribution allows us to continue offering dharma at the centre and online. Every contribution is of tremendous benefit and deeply appreciated!


We are delivering engaging and beneficial  teachings and events in person and online with various teachers. Teachers include Geshe Tsultrim, Venerable Chokyi, Venerable Kartson, Outreach groups with Peter Shepherd and Alan Carter, and Yoga with Erin Lee.

As a Dharma community we feel it is important to offer what we can to those connected with the Centre already and to anyone who may benefit from the Buddhadharma.
