Dear Dharma Friends:

Thekchen Choling Syracuse Temple has moved out of its previous location on Warren Street, and is urgently looking for a new home. If anyone knows of a large open commercial space to buy or rent, please let us know.

In the meantime during this transition, Dharma activities will continue at different venues in and around the community. Please refer to the Event Calendar for times and locations.

We are sorry for this temporary disruption and inconvenience. We are grateful for your Dharma friendship and for your continued support. Please keep checking this website for updates and also watch your e-mail and Facebook for more information about scheduled Dharma activities.

THEKCHEN CHOLING (USA) SYRACUSE: A Buddha Relic Temple located in Central New York.

It is said that merely seeing the relics of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha is the same as seeing the Buddha himself. Buddha relics are the crystallized remains that formed after the Buddha's holy body was cremated in India over 2500 years ago. These relics are known to have tremendous power and can bring great blessings to individuals and the surroundings. Offered to Thekchen Choling Syracuse by Lama Namdrol Rinpoche in 2014, the temple houses a small collection of Buddha relics on its altar for public viewing. Visitors to the temple are welcome and encouraged to sit, meditate and feel the Buddha's blessings in the presence of these precious relics. (In special circumstances and upon request, these relics can be taken out into the community to hospitals, nursing homes and animal shelters to give blessings to those beings who are sick, dying or suffering in other ways.)

Our mission is to practice and propagate the Buddhadharma for the fulfillment of self and others.

We invite you to explore our web site via the links above, and to join us for events at the Thekchen Choling Vajrayana Temple in downtown Syracuse.
