Mission Statement

Ari Bhöd was founded by Venerable Lama Chödak Gyatso Nubpa to preserve the ancient Nyingma wisdom tradition of Tibet. Every facet of this tradition offers a treasury of methods for working with our minds to impact our world in a positive and transformative way. Our aim is to preserve in a living environment all essential aspects of this endangered world heritage so that it remains a source of benefit for future generations.

Description

Ari Bhöd operates through a core group of both full-time and seasonal volunteers, diverse in culture, age, skill, and life experience, unified by the motivation to preserve this endangered world heritage and engage in its tradition of peace. Ari Bhöd brings together people from all walks of life to work alongside authentic Tibetan Lamas, monks and master artists to preserve this vanishing culture.

Ari Bhöd’s retreat center, Pema Drawa, is located on 475 acres in the peaceful mountains of Tehachapi, California. With offices in southern California, Ari Bhöd’s principle programs and activities include:

  • Traditional Tibetan Art and Architecture
  • Meditation Practice and Ceremonies
  • Text Translation and Publishing
  • Tools for Peace™, an education program based on the principle of mandala
