About Vajra North

Welcome to Vajra North–Rigdrol Dechen Ling Society, the Canadian chapter of Chagdud Gonpa, founded by the late Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche (1930-2002), a highly accomplished and respected master of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism.

The Society was established in 1984, when His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche made his first visit to Whitehorse, and continues to the present time with a solid group of dedicated Buddhist practitioners. The Society regularly brings to Whitehorse various lamas to provide public presentations, conduct seminars, retreats, and provide empowerments for specific meditation practices.

Group meditation sessions are offered each week, such as a Red Tara Practice every Saturday. There are also other practices; interested persons are invited to go to Contact for further information, or refer to the Vajra North Calendar.
