Tibetan Buddhism in Our Lives

Expand your Wisdom and Refine your Consciousness through Buddhist Practice

At the Mayum Mountain Foundation, we aspire to be a spiritual home for those who want to integrate the practice and study of Buddhism into their lives. Our focus is on the path of personal transformation of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism. Everyone is welcome to come to our Sunday programs to meditate with us.

Mayum is a respectful word for mother in the Tibetan language. The 'mother' is our hidden ability to find the open and free aspect of our minds, allowing limitless love and compassion to come forth. The 'mountain' is stability in that. Practice is how we find Mayum Mountain.

We are a tax-exempt non-profit Buddhist church.

Online Weekend Retreat

Orgyen Menla
November 4-5, 2023

In this retreat we will explore the healing ritual of the Oddiyana Guru, a branch practice revealed by Dudjom Jikdral Yeshe Dorje in his cycle Tso Kye Thukthik, the Heart Essence of the Lakeborn. We will also touch upon the lesser known accomplishment practice of Orgyen Menla. This weekend will be a little bit retreat, a little bit practice session time, and there will be a little teaching. On the last day, we will also make a torma offering to the Mahakala protector of medicine, Shanglon Dorje Duddul, specifically directed for our own healing of us and that of our loved ones.



Pema Rigdzin has trained in Tibetan Buddhism for thirty years years and completed extensive Vajrayana retreats under Lama Tharchin Rinpoche. He is a lead ritual chanter (umdze), and teacher for Drub Nyiy Döjö Gatsal, a Three-Year Retreat Center. He is also a Chaplain with Stanford Health Care and the Hospice of Santa Cruz County, an acupuncturist with a BA in Physical Therapy and a keen researcher of ancestral forms of healing.


Cost: $40-80 sliding scale. $60 recommended.


Sessions: 10 to 12:30 and 2:30 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday

About Loppon Yudron Wangmo

Founder and Director

Yudron Wangmo began studying and practicing Tibetan Buddhism in the early 1990's, balancing in-depth practice and service to her Tibetan teachers with her work as a nurse, nurse practitioner, and healer.


Later, she completed lengthy meditation retreats, including the traditional three-year three-month group retreat in California under the guidance of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche. Her main mentors have been Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche, and Adzom Paylo Rinpoche. 


Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche officially authorized her to teach in 2017. In 2020, Ngakpa Karma Lhundup Rinpoche asked her to teach Vajrayana gradually, starting with the Heart Essence of Dakini, a treasure of Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, later Throma Nakmo, and always Guru Rinpoche.
