Welcome to the website for Nyima Tashi Kagyu Buddhist Centre in Auckland, New Zealand.

Nyima Tashi encompasses a refreshing and diverse approach to Buddhism for the twenty-first century, through the development of 3 objectives:

Firstly:To promote and foster interfaith/interdisciplinary awareness of the wide spectrum of Buddhist views and methods, as seen from the perspective of Tibetan, Mahayana, Zen, Theravada, and so forth; to foster dialogue through inviting individual and collective discourses of qualified teachers from all respective traditions, and instituting conferences, courses, and opportunities for ongoing discussion.

Secondly: To help promote genuine understanding of the benefits of Buddhist philosophy and practice in modern life, through the integration of an eclectic range of western research and commentary on such topics as psychology, philosophy, medicine, and other arts and sciences.

Thirdly: To advance and preserve the philosophy and practices of both Kagyu and Nyingma lineages; two of the oldest schools of Tibetan Buddhism, with a particular care given to the unfolding of the Kagyu tradition.

In order to bring about these objectives Nyima Tashi will move into a similar format to that of E-Vam Buddhist Institute in Melbourne, Australia. Due to the proximity of the two countries we may see more of this movement from overseas, as teachers that visit K.E.B.I. make the journey to Auckland.

Spiritual Director
Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX

Dear Friends and Members of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche’s Centres,

It is with deep regret that we inform the Karma Kagyu tradition, the Nyingma tradition and all other schools of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the wider Buddhist community that our treasured and beloved Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche passed into parinirvana at 12.10 am on 24th July 2012, being the Fourth Day of the Sixth Month of the Tibetan calendar in the Year of the Dragon.

Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche was devoted to maintaining the Essence and purity of Buddhism. Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche was not only a remarkable and outstanding scholar of the teachings of Buddhism but his ability to communicate the teachings ensured that the essence of the teachings penetrated the hearts and minds of thousands of students of the Dharma throughout the world. We deeply and earnestly pray for the quick rebirth of Traleg Rinpoche.

We feel blessed beyond belief to be a part of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche’s activities throughout the West.
