Our Mission
Our mission is to offer authentic teachings and practices in the Tantric Buddhist traditions of the Nyingmapa, the ancient school of Tibet; and to create a gathering place and support structure for the D.C. area community for regular practice, instruction and study; and to preserve the teachings of Lord Buddha and of our lineage masters for future generations.
By following the authentic teachings transmitted to us through our spiritual teachers, our goals are to establish the Dharma in the world and to benefit all sentient beings.  To do this, we offer a place for the community and for ourselves to practice the two accumulations — understanding through study, and realization through practice — to discover the living Dharma within ourselves, and to support each other in our practice and our lives.
Our Values
 We present these principals to guide our actions:  We strive to emulate the values personified by our teachers, including compassion for all beings, equanimity, patience, openness, ethical behavior, non-grasping, generosity, humility and simplicity.  We strive to hold respect for each member of the Sangha (community) as a practitioner on the path of enlightenment, with no bias toward anyone who comes seeking Dharma instruction and community.  We are committed to a democratic spirit among our members, with oversight and guidance from our spiritual teachers.  Decisions are made in an open, honest and cooperative manner with organizational processes as transparent as possible.  We conduct the affairs of the organization in compliance with all local, state, and national laws.
