Join us and help preserve Olmo Ling as a sacred space of spiritual refuge under the guidance of Tempa Dukte Lama! All proceeds of this event will go towards the Olmo Ling Capital Campaign.

The building where we have been renting our beloved Olmo Ling temple space in Pittsburgh (1101 Greenfield Ave) for the past 13 years has been put up for sale. The capital campaign is dedicated to raising funds for a down payment and necessary building renovation.

Tempa Lama’s vision for many years has been to provide a sacred space of refuge where the community can come together to strengthen their spiritual practice and where everyone can have access to well-learned Tibetan Bon masters and Western teachers. Olmo Ling also provides translations of ancient Tibetan Bon texts into Western languages. Most of all, Tempa Lama is dedicated to supporting Western students who want to train and become responsible Bon teachers and lamas so that the ancient wisdom of Bon can truly grow deep roots in the West. Through our in-person and online teachings, we reach a truly global audience and a growing worldwide community.

The capital campaign is the most consequential initiative that Olmo Ling has undertaken to date. The Olmo Ling temple space carries the profound energy of thirteen years of spiritual practice and teachings. Most of all, it carries the immeasurable blessings of His Holiness the late 33rd Menri Trizin who visited and taught here twice, and his successor the 34th Menri Trizin who visited in 2019.

Help us establish a permanent sacred refuge for the wisdom and compassion of the Bon tradition where we can continue to manifest Tempa Lama’s work!
