Welcome to the Vajra Vidya Retreat Center Home Page

Vajra Vidya Retreat Center was built under a sacred mountain between the Karmapa Tashi Gomang stupa and the Tulku Urgyen stupa in Crestone, Colorado. It was founded by the Venerable Thrangu Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist master, with the intent of having the Center for intensive practice, initially for short periods and ultimately for the traditional Three Year Retreat.

The Center began its first Three Year Retreat on February 25, 2013, the first full moon of the Tibetan New Year. The Retreat will conclude in early summer of 2016, and the Center is not available for other retreatants until that time.

Vajra Vidya Retreat Center remains open to the local community or visitors but only for individual practice and meditation in the shrine room between the hours of 7:45 am and 9:00 am.

Request for prayers for those who are ill, and for the deceased, are of course still welcomed. They can be made by email -- coordinator@vajravidya.com -- or by calling the Center, 719-256-5539.
