Bozeman Dharmata Sangha

The Bozeman Dharmata Sangha was formed in 2010 under the direction of Tibetan Buddhist meditation master and founder of the international Dharmata Foundation, Anam Thubten Rinpoche. We are guided and inspired by his teachings and presence.

We aspire to integrate these teachings into our daily lives through study, practice and meditation, for the benefit of all beings. In addition to weekly Sangha meetings, we host programs and retreats with Anam Thubten Rinpoche and other Tibetan Buddhist teachers.

We meet on Sundays, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Live streamings (from Point Richmond, CA) start at noon.
All are welcome to join us for practice and community!
