We are a Buddhist group here in Reno, Nevada, guided by our Venerable Master, Lama Jigme Rinpoche from Tibet.
We are currently teaching Dharma and meditation to the inmates at Nevada prisons in Carson City. Our Lama helps the inmates to develop compassion and inner peace understanding the principles of Buddhism like karma, dependent origination and accumulation of merit, in order to purify the negative emotions of the mind.
Nevada prisons in Carson City
The teachings and practices of Siddha Yoga are brought to incarcerated men and
women through the Siddha Yoga Meditation Study Courses. The 17 year long Course
lessons describe in simple, down-to-earth language the timeless, transformative wisdom
of yoga. Lessons are received monthly and are free of charge to all who are
incarcerated. They are available in Spanish translation on request. Persons of all
spiritual and religious persuasions are invited to participate. Nearly 5000 inmates are
enrolled in the Courses in over 900 prisons in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Italy, the U.K.,
