About Drogmi Buddhist Institute
Drogmi Buddhist Institute was formally incorporated in October 2009, with the aim of promoting the understanding, study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism in Australia, in line with the Great Sakya Tradition, under the guidance and support of His Holiness the Sakya Trizin. The centre is open to all who are interested in the precious Dharma and its teachings.
The centre is managed by a Committee of students who are committed to supporting Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe in his teaching and vision for Drogmi Buddhist Institute.
Drogmi Buddhist Institute is a member of the Buddhist Council of NSW.
