In 1999, Venerable Thupten Ngodup, the medium for the Nechung Oracle (Kuten), the State Oracle of Tibet, founded the Bay Area Nechung Buddhist Center. Kuten La envisioned the Dharma Center as a place where local Tibetans and Westerners could study and practice Tibetan Buddhism without regard to sect. The Bay Area Nechung Buddhist Center, affiliated with the Nechung Monastery in Dharamsala, is now a 501c3 non-profit religious organization.


The Center is dedicated to promoting the culture and wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition to people of all walks of life.



Our Mission

To rebuild the original Nechung Monastery when there is a true religious freedom in Tibet.


To help the Nechung Monastery in exile in India through finding sponsors and donors for the young monks to aid in their education, health and living facilities.


To help individuals, families and organizations in the US, especially the Bay area through prayer and ritual services and educating them about spiritual values and Buddhism.


To keep the rich spiritual and cultural tradition of Tibet alive. Today, Tibetans regularly flock to the teachings and prayer gatherings organized by the Nechung Buddhist Center, San Francisco Bay Area,
