Mission Statement

Odiyan is an all-volunteer nonprofit Retreat Center dedicated to meaningful work, wholesome living and the inner development of mind and spirit. The mission of Odiyan is twofold: to assist in the protection, preservation and flourishing of Buddhist cultures in Asia and the West and to model as a living experiment the integration of Buddhist principles and Western thought through a lifestyle which is dedicated to the benefit of our planet and all of humanity. The Odiyan way of life integrates creative and challenging work with a path of self-exploration that opens up inner potential.

Description

Odiyan was founded in 1975 by Tibetan Lama Tarthang Tulku who came to America in the late 1960's. For over 40 years, Volunteers from all over the world have been coming for six months or more to develop their own potential and contribute to the unique and holistic vision of enlightened knowledge for the benefit of all beings.
