Songtsen Gampo Buddhist Center of Cleveland was established as a nonprofit organization in 2008 under our Spiritual Directors Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche and Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche.

Buddhist nun Ani Palmo, our Resident Teacher and Director of Songtsen Gampo Buddhist Center, is a native Clevelander who has been teaching courses in Buddhism and Meditation in the Greater Cleveland area since 2003.

We provide instruction in Buddhist meditation and philosophy in a way that is applicable to both non-Buddhists and Buddhists alike. The Center also serves as the focal point for forming a true spiritual community where we support one another in our practice and benefit the larger community as well.

Join us in person or online for classes, events, and weekly meditation.
