Distilling key concepts and practices of Buddhism throughout history as well as contemporary perspectives on ancient texts can help us see new ways forward in our complex world. Our integrated methodology facilitates this seeing. It is based on the traditional Buddhist frame of view, meditation, and application, blending together these elements to form a singular, unified approach. This approach helps us most effectively imbue the wholesome qualities of the tradition into our daily lives, work, families, and communities.


Community is vital to the Tergar Institute. It forms the safe space necessary to go deep into these teachings and practices. During our programs, staff, faculty, and students team up to create an intentional and transformative space, drawing inspiration from our monastic environment.
