Our organization is based on the Buddhist tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa of Tibet as taught to us by our founders Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche.

Our Mission

Land of Calm Abiding is a Tibetan Buddhist Hermitage devoted to preserving the Mahayana Buddhist tradition through meditation, retreat, and practice. The culmination of this pursuit is a place where sincere practitioners can actualize the unmistaken teachings of the Buddha.


Good human qualities… honesty, sincerity, a good heart, cannot be bought with money, nor can they be produced by machines, but only by the mind itself. We call this the inner light, or God’s blessing, or human quality. This is the essence of mankind.

— His Holiness the Dalai Lama
