Welcome to Drikung Seattle!

Drikung Seattle was founded by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche in 2013.  Drikung Seattle is a Dharma center in the Drikung Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. All are welcome!

Help Build a Permanent Home for Drikung Seattle

EXCITING NEWS! Drikung Seattle has received a generous gift of land on which to build a residence/Buddhist Center.

It is HE Garchen Rinpoche’s wish for Drikung Seattle to have its own building for teachings and practice. To enact Rinpoche’s vision to create a physical home for Drikung Seattle, we are fully reliant on the generosity of our kind sponsors.
