The Dalai Lama

Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center of New Jersey

The Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center of New Jersey, which was founded in 1958 by Kalmyk-Mongolian teacher Geshe Ngawang Wangyal, has maintained a tradition of inviting the Dalai Lama to teach Buddhism before large public audiences. In 1979, Geshe Ngawang Wangyal sponsored the Dalai Lama’s first religious teaching in the United States, initiating the Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center of New Jersey tradition. The Center has hosted the Dalai Lama on six additional occasions.
