About

Dzogchen Shri Singha of Portland

As a self-supporting branch of the Dzogchen Shri Singha International organization, DSSP holds weekly practice sessions in Portland using Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche’s The Buddha Path, a manual intended for the cultivation of wisdom and compassion in the Dzogchen tradition.

Since the establishment of the nearby Dzogchen Retreat Center outside Eugene, Oregon and the inception of the annual Dzogchen Lineage Internship in 2008, the local DSSP Sangha has offered ongoing support in the training of practitioners and teachers in the Khandro Nyingthig and Longchen Nyingthig traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

 

Dzogchen Shri Singha of Portland (DSSP) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2004 with the mission of supporting Tibetan Buddhist master, H.E. Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche’s enlightened Dharma activities in the Pacific Northwest.

Our in-person meetings are paused for the duration of the pandemic. We are still teaching every week on Zoom! See below for our schedule.

The Portland Dharma Center regularly monitors updates by the CDC and the OHA regarding best practices for personal and public health during the pandemic. As Oregon begins to reopen, we will revisit our online-only teaching schedule and reopen accordingly.

We are currently developing a plan for reopening and how to teach in person at the Portland Dharma Center in SW Portland. Keep checking this site and following our monthly newsletter for updates on our reopening.
