Welcome to Saraha Nyingma Buddhist Institute, or "Saraha" for short. Located in Eugene Oregon, Saraha is a Buddhist Temple and spiritual community, featuring regular 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!

Sadly indeed, covid first evacuated and eventually terminated our wonderful Saraha Children's School in the pandemic time.  This has been a tragedy for Saraha Institute, and we continuously imagine, think and hope to find a way to resurrect our school in the nearest future.  Suggestions, questions and input from the online community are welcome to hear.   

This what we said about our school (before it closed.)

"Saraha Children's School (SCS), grades K-4 is a vital part of Saraha Institute's educational goals, the Institute is the home of.  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....
