About us


Primordial Rigden

The Auckland Shambhala Meditation Centre is a nonprofit organisation, run by volunteers.

Shambhala was founded by  Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and consists of over 200 meditation centres and groups worldwide.

At our community’s core is the Shambhala Buddhist path. Unique in the world of Western Buddhism, this path combines the teachings of the Kagyü and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala tradition of living an uplifted life of wakefulness, fully engaged with the world.
