Gampopa Center

Dharma Center in Annapolis, Maryland

The Gampopa center is a nonprofit center that teaches the Buddha Dharma in Annapolis. We hold teachings and spriritual practice several times a week at our center located at 424 Fourth Street in Eastport. Our schedule can be found on our events page. Lama Phurbu Tashi Rinpoche teaches and leads the programs whenever he is in Annapolis. You can read his teachings here on this site.

Lama Phurbu Tashi Rinpoche has said, "My intention to teach here is to bring some spiritual benefits to the material world. Not for any other reason, not even to establish Buddhist communities or turn the people on to my way. Although still of course I teach meditation according to Buddha’s teachings, otherwise it wouldn’t help you if I teach something from my own ideas; because I am not an enlightened being. The teachings of enlightened one (Buddha) is proved by thousands and thousands of great scholars and accomplished peoples and this is the thing that can bring us peaceful, happiness and freedom."
