Center for Wisdom & Compassion – Tong-Nyi Nying-Je Ling – is a Tibetan-Buddhist Center offering classes, courses and retreats on Buddhism and Buddhist Meditation with world renowned practitioners and scholars in the heart of Copenhagen.
The center is affiliated with The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition and follows the spiritual direction of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) is an international, non-profit organization, founded in 1975 by Lama Thubten Yeshe (1935-84), a Tibetan Buddhist monk and teacher. The FPMT is devoted to the transmission of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through teaching, meditation, and community service.
FPMT provides integrated education through which people’s minds and hearts can be transformed into their highest potential for the benefit of others, inspired by an attitude of universal responsibility. The organization is committed to creating harmonious environments and helping all beings develop their full potential of infinite wisdom and compassion. Our organization is based on the Buddhist tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa of Tibet as taught to us by our founder Lama Thubten Yeshe and spiritual director Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
The center has activities most days, presenting and practicing the Dharma in many ways, including classes on meditation and Tibetan Buddhism. These are the regular programs taught mainly by various teachers and experienced students. We also lead the traditional Buddhist practices such as pujas as well as introductory FPMT courses. We also host many weekend courses with visiting teachers. By having this variety of activities, the center tries to hold several different gateways open for introducing people to the Dharma while still offering more advanced courses for experienced students.
