A warm welcome to the website of Jam Tse Dhargyey Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre. 

“Centre from which Love and Compassion flourishes.”


Jam Tse Dhargyey Ling is a Tibetan Buddhist centre of Study and Meditation. (pronounced Jum say dagee ling). Translated from Tibetan means:  “Centre from which Love and Compassion flourishes.” It is run by the Jam Tse Dhargyey Trust and is located in Whangarei City, Northland, New Zealand. You will find the centre, surrounded by native bush, at the top of Parakiore Road, with commanding views of Whangarei city and its harbour.

Jam Tse Dhargyey Ling is privileged to be the home of three resident Tibetan monks:
Ven. Geshe Sangey Thinley: our resident spiritual teacher and qualified Buddhist Master,
Ven. Geshe Jamyang Sherab: our arts and cultural director and
Ven. Karma Gyasey: Geshe Sangey Thinley’s attendant and interpreter.

Through the wisdom of these kind and compassionate Sangha members, our centre is able to offer a full year of programmes and dharma activities for the benefit of all beings.  We are also fortunate to be home to resident nun, Ven. Jampa Tsekyi, who is a pillar to the centre and through whose efforts we are able to offer regular meditation classes and community support.

Please feel free to come and visit us. Map here.
You are most welcome to take part in any of our activities, wander in our beautiful gardens, stroll through our native bush and walk up to the Stupa (Peace Monument). The views from here are breathtakingly magnificent and well worth the small climb.
Our opening hours are 10am to 5pm daily or by arrangement.

You may also like to stay in our tranquil retreat house for a few days.

You will find times and dates for teachings, meditation classes and retreats on this site under Programme or just click onto our calendar here. Please feel free to attend any classes, teachings, meditations or retreats you feel are suitable for you while you are either visiting Whangarei or residing here.
