The Rigdzin Community is an international association belonging to the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. It was founded by Rigdzin Namkha Gyatso Rinpoche, more than 20 years ago.

Our aim is to support the study and practice of Vajrayana Buddhism, and the Dudjom tersar lineage in particular. The « New Treasures of Dudjom » is the collection of termas revealed by Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904) and Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987). Their precise, direct and concise practices are particularly suited to our contemporary world.

The Rigdzin Community organises numerous events throughout the year, such as weekends of teachings, in-depth study programs, or intensive meditation retreats (drubchös). Those events are led by Namkha Rinpoche, his main representative Lama Sangye Dorje, as well as the handful of heart disciples Namkha Rinpoche appointed as teachers.

The largest events tend to take place in Switzerland, at the Rigdzin Thegchok Ling centre, and in the south of Spain at the Rigdzin Namkha Dzong Orgyen Khandro Ling retreat centre. The Rigdzin Community also comprises a number of other centres spread across Europe in Lithuania, France, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands, Italy, and Tenerife. Each of these centres also organises regular events, and their sangha gathers each 10th and 25th day of the lunar month to practice tsok (also known as ganachakra).
