Tashi Delek,

I am proud to be the head director of The Vajra Wisdom Foundation welcoming all Buddhists and all others to find their way, learn and teach. I am Dzogchen Buddhist Nyingmapa Lama teacher here.

The Vajra Wisdom Foundation is open and students and donations are welcome . Anything will be appreciated to help spread the Dharma and help open our new Dharma Center and Retreat Land! The Vajra Wisdom Foundation is a Dzogchen Vajrayana Buddhist teaching foundation in the Nyingma lineage - The Ancient Ones (especially Dudjom Tersar) because of his outlook and approach to Dharma. We are part of the worldwide movement to bring The Nyingma Buddha Dharma to the West. This means we also honor and incorporate Sakya and Kagyu teachings and practices in our classes. And everyone is welcome! LGBT welcome!

I am responsible for acquiring, making, certifying and acquiring Gold, Silver and Bronze statues, jewelry, Thangka's and many other antiquities and collectibles from Nepal, India, China and around the world for our stores. Our Stores ( Buddha’s Store and The Wisdom Store ) stock many hundreds of wonderful art, jewelry and Buddhist, Chinese, Indian and Hindu items. Our Stores also work with other centers supplying Real Statues, Real Thangka's, Fine Decor and Buddhist, Chinese, Indian and Hindu shrine pieces. We have over 25 years experience to make and acquire authentic products from all over the world. In addition, I teach many classes in the USA and around the world.


Jampa Lobsang Chodak, MFA


I came  to Tibetan Buddhism over a decade ago and immediately devoted his time to several San Francisco area Sanghas including Pema Osel Ling and Lotus Dharma Garden. He was fortunate to receive many teachings from true lineage holders such as Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, Kalu Rinpoche, Dzongsar  Khyentse Rinpoche, and precious others whose names he holds closely. He is now a founder of and teacher at the Vajra Wisdom Foundation. Together he and and Trimé Lodrö Jüngney worked closely together for over 20 years and, together with their Lamas, developed and blessed the Vajra Wisdom Foundation. Jampa is easily approachable and is especially interested in helping people understand how much they already know about what is truly important in life. He also offers welcoming, informal writing workshops to help people work through difficult periods in their lives, bringing Buddhist insight into what is gently revealed on the page.


"Whatever joy there is in this world,
All comes from wanting others to be happy.
Whatever suffering there is in this world,
All comes from wanting oneself to be happy."
