Padma Ling Spain

Padma Ling Spain

Padma Ling (The Lotus Garden) was founded by Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche in 1997 to provide his students with a platform to access his teachings, as well as the continuous and progressive shaping of spiritual practice, retreats, courses, conferences, etc. in different European countries.

The inauguration in Spain took place in Barcelona on November 23, 2001.


An important objective of the Association is to support the humanitarian tasks that Rinpoche carries out in the Tibetan refugee camps around the Monastery of Orissa: sponsorships of monks, children, the elderly, water purification systems, schools, dispensaries, etc. 

Padma Ling is also present in Valencia, Madrid, Bilbao, Zaragoza and San Sebastián.
