To provide  a conducive and harmonious environment  for the study and practice of the Buddhist teachings.  

CTCT is devoted to the transmission of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, following the teachings of Lama Tsong Khapa as presented to us by our founder  Lama Yeshe and Spiritual Director Lama Zopa Rinpoche, through teaching, meditation and community service.
We offer the opportunities of integrated education through which people's minds and hearts can be transformed into their highest potential for the benefits of others, inspired by an attitude of universal responsibility. We are committed to creating harmonious environments and helping all beings develop their full potential of infinite wisdom and compassion.
