We live in a complex and ever-changing world which presents challenges for anyone who seeks to maintain a contemplative practice. As a response to this our center offers a place to gather for group practice, personal instruction, for study, as well as meditation and reflection.

Our primary concern is to offer Tibetan Buddhist training in a manner that reflects the specific guidance and wisdom of the Kagyu lineage laid down through the line of the Goshir Gylatsabpas

As a place of refuge, a temple, and a space dedicated to exploring meaningfully engaged contemplative practice, New York Tsurphu Goshir Dharma Center is committed to supporting the community that it serves.
We maintain a variety of Buddhist practices on a daily, weekly, monthly and annual basis. In this way we adhere to the centuries-old traditions of maintaining a close relationship to the practice schedules of the monasteries affiliated with His Eminence Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche in India and Tibet. Following these commitments is a way of connecting to the blessings and profound inner meaning offered by these forms of contemplative practice.
Examples of some of the regular practices that we offer are as follows:
  • On a daily basis, we perform the offering of water tormas in the morning and an offering to the glorious lineage protectors in the evening.
  • On Wednesdays, we perform Chöd offerings.
  • On the 15th of every Tibetan lunar month, we perform Tara puja.
  • On the 8th of every Tibetan lunar month, we perform the Medicine Buddha puja.
  • On the 10th of every lunar month, we perform a feast offering to Vajrakilaya.
  • On the 25th of every Tibetan lunar month, we also perform the long Vajravarahi Sadhana and Milarepa Guru Yoga with a feast offering.
