Dear Friends,

Though the Dharma teachings are beyond price, Songtsen Gampo Buddhist Center’s work to make them available depends entirely on financial support from members and friends like you!  We offer meditation for adults and families as well as classes, seminars, retreats and Lama visits. Our mission is to provide opportunities for Buddhist study and practice throughout the greater Cleveland area.

We are in great need of regular donations to cover the ongoing bills we face to keep the Center functioning including rent, utilities, insurance, website fees, and expenses for Lama visits.

Your donations also support our resident teacher, Ani Palmo Rybicki. It has been her sole mission for the past 15 years to minister to and serve our community.

There are membership levels to accommodate any budget, and 100% of every pledge supports the Center’s activities.

Songtsen Gampo Buddhist Center a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Your contribution may be deductible from US federal income tax; however, the amount of your deduction is limited to the excess of your contribution over the value of goods or services received from Songtsen Gampo Buddnist Center.

Many employers offer matching donation programs. Check to see if your employer does the same, and let us know.

Your support is greatly needed and very much appreciated!

With Gratitude,



Sheila O’Rourke
President, Songtsen Gampo Buddhist Center of Cleveland
