The Lama Tsong Khapa Center is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation group in Kalamazoo Michigan.

We host sitting meditation bi-monthly plus and an occasional visit by Rimpoche, who may offer Empowerment to qualified persons.

As a branch of the Gaden for the West foundation under Zasep Tulku Rimpoche our aim is to promote Dharma practice in general, and especially as preserved within the tradition of Je Tsong Khapa (14th century founder of the Gelugpa order).

We keep our focus Dharma-centric. So, while striving to maintain our own tradition, we nevertheless respect others and hold no political agendas.

May those of like outlook, whatever their preferred tradition, please feel welcome to practice with us.
