Welcome to Ripa International

An International Buddhist Community

The Ripa lineages is an authentic Nyingma Kagyu householder yogic lineage giving rare and precious Buddhist teachings to an international community, bringing them together in peace and harmony. Dedicated to the path of Enlightenment through the practice of wisdom and compassion, we bring forth excellence and virtue, through leading engaged, worthy lives. And, as a vibrant Dharma community, we gather together regularly and celebrate each others’ many national cultures.

“Shunning all evil, performing every good, purifying one’s own mind – this is the teaching of all Buddhas.”  –Shakyamuni Buddha
