About Us

Gyalwa Gyatso Buddhist Center (GGBC) is the Silicon Valley center affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition, FPMT. We are part of the Gelug lineage of what is usually called “Tibetan” Buddhism. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the spiritual inspiration for our organization and Kyabje Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche is the spiritual director.

Gyalwa Gyatso Buddhist Center’s mission is to preserve and promote the Mahayana Buddhist tradition in Silicon Valley through education, practice and service.

GGBC conducts on-going courses in Buddhist philosophy and practice. We also host special events with authentic teachers in our tradition, including Tibetan lamas, qualified international monks and nuns, and experienced Western Dharma students. We also have a growing Wellness Program.

Gyalwa Gyatso Buddhist Center is a registered non-profit religious corporation, 501(c)3, and donations are tax-deductible.
