Visit the Institute

Open hours and By appointment

Visit the Temple 

Spend time meditating and making offerings in the lovely Kalachakra Temple. You can come visit the temple grounds even when classes are not going on to stop in and enjoy the peace and blessings of all the paintings and statues.

It is a very rare and special opportunity to make offerings and meditate with the most authentic and relic filled 24 Arm Kalachakra Statue in the Western World. Just seeing the precious paintings and statues is a cause for your future enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings. 

Another way to visit the temple is to join for one of our classes.

Tea & rEading Room

Our reading room is a cozy space that welcomes guests and community members to share conversation and inspiration over a cup of chai or coffee. Sit down and peruse our wide selection of Buddhist books on Dharma and Tantra. Many of these books are rare and out of print or hard to find. You are welcome to come and sit and read for as long as you like. 

Rime Institute Shop

We carry all of Khentrul Rinpoche's books to learn Kalachakra tantra and Buddhism as well as a selection of previously owned Dharma, spiritual and personal development literature. In addition to books, we carry a beautiful hand-picked selection of gifts including cards, music, clothing, malas, jewelry, and meditation supplies and more.
