Lama Lodu Rinpoche was appointed resident lama of Kagyu Droden Kunchab in San Francisco by His Eminence Kalu Rinpoche in 1976, and since then has worked tirelessly to benefit sentient beings throughout the world. He has led multiple groups of Westerners on Three Year Retreats, erected marble stupas, and gives teachings at centers spanning the entire world, from Hanoi, Vietnam to St. Louis, Missouri. His Holiness the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa once described Lama Lodu Rinpoche as “a lama who has highly developed his inner practice.” Rinpoche’s teachings are clear, unique, and profound, giving time for question and answers to clarify the student’s understanding and ensuring they have the full capability to engage with the practice and benefit not only themselves, but all sentient beings.

Ven. Lama Lodu Rinpoche will be available for personal interviews to answer questions about your practice and receive guidance on any subject you wish to talk about personally. Please call to arrange an appointment with either:
