The Ri-mé Society is dedicated to the study, preservation, and continuation of the teachings and practices of Vajrayana Buddhism. Ri-mé Society provides talks, seminars, classes, and group practices for those seeking an introduction to the Buddhist teachings as well as for experienced practitioners. We offer programs for varied levels of Buddhist practice. Ri-mé is a Tibetan word that means non-sectarian or unbiased. The Ri-mé Society is named for the open-minded spiritual attitude and practice that has its roots in the original teachings and spirit of Shakyamuni Buddha, which continued in India and as Buddhism took root in Tibet, and which was reignited by brilliant and highly realized teachers and practitioners of the 19th Century Ri-mé Movement in Tibet.
