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.

How do we relate to Dharmapalas practice?
Some practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism have a natural affinity with Dharmapala practice. For them, this class will broaden their knowledge of the classes and activities of the array of Nyingma protectors,
At the same time, many Vajrayana practitioners don’t get the purpose of these practices, how they function, and how they connect with the elevated view of the Great Perfection Dzogchen. These subjects are rarely addressed by lamas. Let’s dig into this vast subject together! Each session will have a talk, followed by discussion and Q and A.
Pema Rigdzin has trained in Tibetan Buddhism for thirty 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.
This class is restricted to people who have received thorough instruction in the Nyingma practice of full-length sadhana, either with Loppon Yudron or another qualified teacher. Participants must also have memorized the Seven Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche in Tibetan by the day of the first class session.
