Support Our Mission
Tse Chen Ling Center has grown from a small group of students in Ven. Carol Corradi’s living room to a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a bustling city program that follows the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
Each year, we expand our programs with the goal of providing the best social-service possible: the tools to transform negative states of minds to minds of equanimity, compassion, love, and joy.
You Can Help Build the Tse Chen Ling Mandala
Tse Chen Ling offers two membership categories – General Members and Dharmachakra Members. You may contribute to one or both, and your member level is based on your total monthly offering. As a member you can enjoy the great benefits that membership has to offer. With a Basic membership you will receive a 25% discount on all classes, lectures, and workshops, and a 10% discount on books, and other items in our Bookstore. Basic membership begins at $25/month. See our donations page for additional membership levels and benefits. Sign-up now.
These offerings cover the costs of providing the space to hold our classes and any administrative costs. In addition they are used to cover any shortfalls in Program and Dharmachakra costs. Sign-up now.
Dharmachakra Membership (Teacher Support)
These offerings are used exclusively to support our resident teacher, Geshe Ngawang Dakpa and his attendant, Venerable Jampa Thinley, and translator. Donations also go toward the support of Venerable Chokyi, and Emily Hsu. Offerings made to the Dharmachakra are used for housing, medical expenses, health insurance, and other living expenses that support our ongoing teaching staff, and to insure we can continue to offer high quality teachers and translators.

The Future at Tse Chen Ling
Owing to the generous support of our community, Tse Chen Ling is in the process of an amazing transformation from a small livingroom-based Dharma Center, to a large, bustling community center whose sole purpose is to benefit the lives of those whom we contact.
In addition to our unparalleled academic program in Tibetan Buddhist Studies, featuring the Basic Program, the Discovering Buddhism series, and a program to facilitate the practice of meditation, we are expanding our programming to include lectures, workshops, and classes in Buddhist philosophy, psychology, art, metaphysics, health, wellness, and anything that may help support the quality of life for our members.
It is our goal to have classes and programs every night of the week, so that the community will always have the option to learn more about living life in the most meaningful way possible.
