The Tibetan Buddhist Institute was established in April 2005 by Kyabje Khensur Kangurwa Lobsang Thubten Rinpoche, in order to fulfil the wishes of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.

The aim of the centre is to cultivate Mahayana Teaching and Meditation. It is dedicated to providing the teachings of Lama Tsong Khapa in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. It seeks to encourage the values of love, compassion, wisdom, non discrimination, self responsibility and fairness, through these teachings, meditation and community service.

The teachings provide a path to achieve such aims, and reminds us to be of benefit to others and ever vigilant in our sense of universal responsibility. This Centre aims to preserve the teachings of H.H. Dalai Lama, our spiritual head, and Kyabje Khensur Kangurwa Lobsang Thubten Rinpoche, our founder and spiritual director.

Thekchen Shedrub Choeling means:

Thekchen = Mayahana; all beings to be free of suffering
Shedrub = Cultivating Study and Meditation
Choeling = Island of Dharma; Dharma Land/Place

Teachings at our centre are traditional and authentic, by one of the original Lamas who escaped from Tibet with His Holiness Dalai Lama, Ven Khensur Rinpoche. He is very ably assisted by Geshe Jampa Gyaltsen, who was carefully chosen by Rinpoche, because of his extremely high academic and philosphical achievements, coupled with his great reverence for the teachings, his spontaneous and accurate insights and soft demeanour. His Holiness has described him as being "ïn the inner circle of my friends.

We usually hold an annual 11 day retreat in October, and many weekend teaching workshops throughout the year. Ven Rinpoche gives initiations into Highest Yoya Tantra Deities, and various other teaching events.

We also have other classes, run by our Sangha and advanced students: Learn to Meditate, Introduction to Buddhism, Compassion and Medicine Buddha Meditation Days, Healing Meditation Days, Practice Days, Vajrayogini, Yamantaka, Green Tara, Chenrezig, Medicine Buddha Practices, Guru Pujas.
