Welcome to Rigpa Washington DC!

RIGPA is a Tibetan word which means “the innermost nature of the mind.”

Sogyal Rinpoche gave the name “Rigpa” to his work and to the vehicle he was developing to serve the Buddha’s teaching in the west. Now an international network with centers and groups in eleven countries around the world, Rigpa seeks:

  • To make the teachings of Buddha available to benefit as many people as possible, and
  • To offer those following the Buddhist teachings a complete path of study and practice, along with the environment they need to explore the teachings to their fullest.

We thank you for your interest in Sogyal Rinpoche and his teachings. For more information on Rigpa Washington DC activities, including classes based on Sogyal Rinpoche's teachings, check out the links on this page.

We hope to see you soon!
