Welcome to the website of Jam Tse Dhargyey Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre.
Jam Tse Dhargyey Ling is a Tibetan Buddhist centre of Study and Meditation.
The centre is located at the northern end of Whangarei City in the suburb of Kamo, Northland, New Zealand. It is about two and a half hours drive north of Auckland.
Translated from Tibetan, Jam Tse Dhargyey Ling means: (pronounced Jum say dagee ling): Centre from which Love and Compassion flourishes.
You will find the centre at the top of Parakiore Road with commanding views of Whangarei harbor and the city.  The centre itself is surrounded by native bush.
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: our attendant and caretaker.  Through the wisdom of these kind and compassion 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 is Ven. Jampa Ani Tsekyi, who is a pillar to the centre and though whose effort we are able to offer regular meditation classes and community support.
