About Us


Jigme Lingpa Center is a nonprofit organization led by Lama Lhanang Rinpoche. Our goal is to generate benefit to all sentient beings through the dissemination of the Buddha’s teachings of wisdom and compassion, in order to achieve a sustainable future of peace and harmony for all.

For this, we offer classes, courses, practices and conferences for general public as well as for Tibetan Buddhist practitioners.
Our activities include meditation classes, Anu Yoga, public talks and courses on the various teachings of the Buddha.

At Jigme Lingpa Center, we also aim to preserve the Tibetan philosophy, history and culture.
To achieve this, we organize cultural festivals, conduct celebrations and rituals of Tibetan Buddhism.

In San Diego, the Center operates in Balboa Park, as well as our original site near Lemon Grove, where we offer free courses, although donations are accepted.
We give public lectures on a variety of topics concerning both the practical application of Buddhism and its cultural and historical aspects.

In addition, the Jigme Lingpa Center network has various dharma centers around the world. We also organize spiritual retreats in the United States, Mexico and Canada.

Lama Lhanang Rinpoche’s teachings are simple, profound and touch the very essence of Tibetan Buddhism.

Rinpoche is a Spiritual Teacher and Meditation Master in the Nyingma Longchen Nying-thig lineage. He has studied in Tibet with many great masters, and embodies their wisdom in his teachings about happiness and lovingkindness.

The Sang Long Monastery in Eastern Tibet has recognized him as the reincarnation of Ken Rinpoche Damcho, an emanation of Nubchen Namke Nyingpo (one of the 25 disciples of Padmasambhava).

He shares teachings from an unbroken lineage in a way that is fresh, cross-cultural, and current for these times.

His is a refreshing voice in the chaos of today, focusing on how to find Happiness within.

He is an accomplished instructor of Anu Yoga, an artist, a teacher of Feng Shui, cultural and historical studies and a skillful practitioner of Tibetan Medicine.

Born and raised in Northeastern Tibet, he is a child of the high plains of Golok, Amdo. Today, he lives in California with his wife and infant son and teaches extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe.


We contribute to the community locally and globally. We organize special fundraising activities to help the local population in need and those in areas of the world that have suffered disasters.

In addition, we make visits, talks and workshops in schools, community centers, public libraries, etc. We know that by helping any individual we can make a positive difference in the world.
