What do these Ligmincha International communities have in common: Poland, Texas, Mexico, France, Virginia? They are all home to Ligmincha's resident teachers. Information about our three newest resident teachers is posted on the Ligmincha website.

All six of the Bön resident lamas have interesting and unique backgrounds, and all have studied at either Menri Monastery in India, under His Holiness Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche or at Triten Norbutse Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal, under His Eminence Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche. They have lived and traveled around the world, meditated in solitary retreats in the mountains of Tibet, studied for years with Bon masters and have now dedicated themselves to helping Westerners in their role as resident teachers for Ligmincha International sanghas around the world.

In 2015 and early 2016, Ligmincha welcomed the newest resident teachers for three sanghas around the world: Geshe Lhundup Gyaltsen of France, Geshe Yungdrung Gyatso of Poland and Geshe Denma Gyaltsen of Texas. Other resident lamas are Geshe Tenzin Yangton, resident lama of Serenity Ridge Retreat Center, and Lama Kalsang Nyima and Lama Yungdrung Lodoe, both of the Mexico sangha.
