Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism
Chagdud Gonpa Hispanoamerica was founded to fulfill H. E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche´s aspiration to establish the Buddha dharma—particularly the Nyingmapa lineages of Tibetan Vajrayana—in the Spanish-speaking countries of Latin America. Since Rinpoche's Parinirvana in 2002, the organization is under the spiritual direction of Rinpoche's wife and student, Chagdud Khadro.
We belong to an international network of Spanish speaking centers at South America where its headquarter is Chagdud Gonpa at Tibet and Sengue Dzong (Lion Fortress) is its temple placed at Lavalleja - Uruguay. At Uruguay, about an hour and a half from Montevideo amid beautiful hills, Sengue Dzong has been built of stone in the style of Eastern Tibet and Bhutan and its interior is now being ornamented. We are doing daily practices as Red Tara and monthly trainings about Four Reflections that Change the Mind are offered at Sengue Dzong.
On Febraury of 2010 we made our first Chenrezig Drubdchod guided by Jigme Rinpoche, HE Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche son.
A sangha also meets at Minas, the town nearest Sengue Dzong and also at Florida. At Montevideo its Sangha practices Red Tara and the Vajrayana Preliminaries.
