New York City
For the community of students of Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche in the Eastern United States and Canada.
Some of us attend Rinpoche's teachings in the U.S., Europe,
and Asia, some of us attend teachings at the various Gomdes,
some of us study the Tara's Triple Excellence program
online at dharmasun.org, and some of us study or have studied
in person or online at Rangjung Yeshe Institute in Kathmandu,
Nepal. Originally called Rangjung Yeshe New York, we have changed
our name to Dharma House NYC to reflect Rinpoche's direction to
us to establish a Dharma House in New York City. We are happy to realize
Rinpoche's aspirations by practicing together in person or online.
This is where we post upcoming events that may be of interest to
members as well as various meeting and practice times in this
area, and soon, news about a physical home for Dharma House New York.
Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche has requested that the sangha perform the sadhana of Shakyamuni Buddha, called "A Treasury of Blessings," for the sake of world peace. All of us around the world can use the form at the bottom of this page to track the number of mantras recited in the course of practicing the sadhana.
Rinpoche stated a goal of one million mantras. We have surpassed that goal, and are now aiming our sights at 10 million!
NEW! Click here for a recording of Lama Tsultrim's teaching on the sadhana, given in August 2016 at Garrison Institute. (This is an excellent recording but sadly the very beginning was not recorded.)

Starting Dec 1, 2018, we’re renting a wonderful space to house DHNYC for regular practice, teachings by visiting Lamas, local dharma classes, and much more! The space will also be rented out for the community to host events, which will help cover our monthly expenses.
Our budget for immediate work to do is about $35,000.
