Welcome to Saraha Nyingma Buddhist Institute, or "Saraha" for short. Located in Eugene Oregon, Saraha is a Buddhist Temple and spiritual community, featuring daily practice in the Dudjom lineage of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Saraha's second role, as an educational and research institute, is that of outreach - dedicated to preserving  the wide range of Buddha's teachings by making them available and understandable in the modern world. We hope this site will inform you on our background, vision and intention, as well as providing information on our current schedule, calendar of events, and Dharma Education opportunities. This site is also a source for Buddhist learning resources, including photo, audio, video and structured study materials. Saraha is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Welcome. Explore, and Enjoy!

As a vital part of its educational outreach, the Institute is the home of Saraha Children's School (SCS), grades K-4.  SCS is a multiple award-winning, Oregon State-registered, non-profit private, alternative education school, employing project-based learning methods and integrating child-oriented Buddhist teachings of mindfulness, kindness and compassionate virtue within a full and rigorous academic curriculum.  (whew), CLICK HERE....
