Tara’s Babies Dog and Cat Rescue in Arizona came about as a response to the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the animals who were forced to be separated from their owners. Volunteers were sent from our Buddhist community in Sedona to rescue animals and help at the temporary shelters set up in New Orleans and Mississippi.

The Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche founded Orgyen Dorje Den in 1978 as a place of refuge in the San Francisco Bay Area for the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism. Since that time, students have maintained a practice facility, and now, thanks to an initial donation from a sponsor, we have purchased a wonderful building in Alameda, which we will develop into a permanent and stable resource for the Bay Area Buddhist Community.
