Chenrezig Institute is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). Teachings at the Centre are based on the tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa as taught to us by our founder Lama Thubten Yeshe and Spiritual Director Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Lama Tsongkhapa (1357–1419) was the founder of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, of which His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a prominent teacher.
