Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche’s Vision for Gomde UK
Gomde UK is a Buddhist Centre established by the Charity Rangjung Yeshe UK in 2009. The Spiritual Director is Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, a renowned Tibetan Buddhist master. Gomde’s charitable objectives are twofold; to offer authentic Buddhist teachings and spaces for retreat and to protect and best preserve the rare habitat of Lindholme Estate. Central to our community is an ethos that actively endeavours to live sustainably and in harmony with each other and the natural world. As a dharma centre we practise meditation twice daily and everyone in the community is encouraged to join. Daily group meditation practice helps form the core of our purpose.

In September 2022, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche clarified that in the coming years the Centre will become a monastery with a large temple. Gomde UK will be a place that nurtures and trains a monastic Sangha, preserving the source of the Dharma for generations to come.

This new vast vision necessitates a strengthening and expansion of the charity's people base. To underpin this growth, the Charity seeks to bring on board a Centre Coordinator and Project Coordinator to lead Gomde’s ‘Building the Team’ project.
What difference will you make?
Performing key roles, this is an opportunity to make a truly significant contribution to the development of Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche’s vision for Gomde UK, which will bring vast benefits to people for present and future generations.
