Our Mission – Authentic Teachings with a Modern Perspective

Our goal at Tubten Kunga Center (“TKC”) is to help students achieve their maximum potential for wisdom, happiness, and compassion. Our programs present Buddhist teachings in an authentic and traditional manner, without compromising their integrity. At the same time, we attempt to adapt the presentation of these teachings to modern mentalities, sensibilities, and situations. Our resident teacher, Geshe Konchog Kyab, has spent many years teaching to western students in the United States and Europe, following his extensive training in the Tibetan monastic system. We are also fortunate to be a part of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition, which has been teaching Buddhism in the West for several decades.

Our Students – Ordinary People from All Backgrounds

At TKC, you will find students from all walks of life. Most people who attend classes and events at our center are not Buddhists, but are attracted to Buddhism’s message of peace, compassion, and wisdom. Our students are young and old, married and single, and from all religious and ethnic backgrounds. We provide an engaging selection of classes to suit all levels of interest and effort. We also attempt to foster a community atmosphere, where people can come when they need support during difficult times. We invite you to become a part of our Dharma family, or just drop in as you please!

Our Method – Education, Meditation, Community Service

We follow the inspiration of Lama Zopa Rinpoche , spiritual director of the FPMT, and present a variety of courses and programs aimed at improving the hearts and minds of all people. We believe that a combination of study, practice, ritual, and community service is the optimal method for progressing towards enlightenment. Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of classes and projects, to suit their schedules and interests. Most importantly, we expect students to take what they learn into their hearts, and carry it into their every-day lives. At work, at home, in traffic – we help our students cultivate the tools for a happier lifestyle, and a more peaceful environment.

Our Lineage – The FPMT and the Gelugpa Tradition

At Tubten Kunga Center, we have been handed down one of the most authentic and unbroken lineages in Buddhism. We adhere to the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, which is the main lineage kept by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama. Gelugpa Buddhism began in Tibet with the great scholar and practitioner Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1453), who personally founded many of the great Tibetan monasteries, and was tutor to the first Dalai Lama. The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) has helped share this tradition with the rest of the world, through their network of monasteries, centers, and study groups. The FPMT was founded by Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. We are pending re-affiliation with the FPMT, and are honored to serve south Florida.

Our Heart – His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama

We are supporters of His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, and the Tibetan government-in-exile. Our resident teacher, Geshe Konchog Kyab, is a lifetime student of His Holiness, and we derive many of our teachings from the Dalai Lama’s commentaries and teachings. We strongly believe in the Dalai Lama’s mission of peace, harmony, and freedom for all people.

Our Organization – Volunteer Staff, Donor Supported

We are a non-for-profit organization, and we have been serving South Florida for over 10 years. Our “staff” is comprised 100% of volunteers, who give their time to serve TKC’s students. Even our resident teacher, Geshe Konchog Kyab is a volunteer. Geshe la does not receive a salary from TKC, although we do cover his living expenses and provide him with a very modest stipend for his daily needs. We rely 100% on donations and purchases from our shop to support our expenses. This is truly your center!

Our History – From Study Group to Center

Tubten Kunga Center was founded in 1994, under the spiritual direction of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, by Jacqueline Keeley. For many years, the group was composed of a core cluster of interested people, who met in public venues and at private homes. In 1999, thanks to the generosity of our donors, students and practitioners, the Center moved into a physical facility. Since May of 2000, we are grateful to host Lama Geshe Konchog Kyab as resident teacher.

Tucson Mindfulness Practice Sangha
With Poep Sa Frank Jude Boccio

Those who practice mindful living will inevitably transform themselves and their way of life. Mindfulness is the seed of awakened living, awareness, understanding, compassion, freedom, and healing.  With mindfulness, we learn to live more simply, to enjoy ourselves, our friends and our natural environment. We free ourselves from the conditioned patterns of behavior so that we can respond to the varying conditions of life with love, care and wisdom.

The sangha is a community of practitioners who aspire to support one another to live in harmony as they awaken to a life of love and understanding together.

All are welcome to join the Tucson Mindfulness Practice Community at Tucson Yoga. We meet on Sundays, from 7:00 - 8:30 PM.  The non-sectarian practice includes sitting and walking meditation, instruction and discussion.  Under the direction of guiding teacher, Poep Sa Frank Jude Boccio.
