Thank you for your interest in Buddhist Pilgrimage. Please enjoy the site and feel free to contact me with any questions. I first met my teacher, Venerable Robina Courtin in 1989 when I attended a series of classes with her in Kathmandu, Nepal. Her blend of down-to-earth practical advise, humor and intellect were exactly what I had been searching for.

Our highly qualified pilgrimage leaders incorporate Tibetan Buddhist practices and the teachings handed down by our teachers (Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Lama Thubten Yeshe) into the pilgrimages. These are not sightseeing or shopping tours (although you will have free time and are welcome to do both) but an authentic introduction into the Buddhist way of life. In addition to being a great opportunity to further your knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism these pilgrimages are also a chance to help others, as they are for the benefit of various non-profits and other worthy organizations.

Thanks again for your interest. If you need any assistance, it will be my pleasure to help you. I hope you can join us on what could be the beginning of an extremely rewarding life long journey.
Best wishes,

Pilgrimage Coordinator
"Normally when people go on pilgrimage, they are just like tourists; maybe they take some pictures, and that's it. They don't use the places to collect merit or to meditate or to get some benefit for their minds. If it's just like sightseeing, then it won't be that much benefit." Lama Zopa Rinpoche
