Namdroling Tibetan Buddhist Center in Bozeman, Montana is dedicated to the Palyul tradition of Vajrayana Nyingma Tibetan Buddhism. Namdroling's guiding principle is that of Bodhicitta, or loving kindness and concern for others, as we realize that self-liberation is gained by bringing benefit to all living beings. Our aspiration is to nurture and strengthen our community by studying, practicing, and living the Dharma, and helping the greater community through acts of service and by sharing the Dharma with all who are interested.

Namdroling is open to all with an interest in Buddhism. The Center offers practices on most Sundays and the major auspicious days in the Tibetan Calendar.
