Gaden Samdrupling Buddhist Monastery, founded in 1999, is a community center for Buddhist study, practice, and culture. It is a tiny corner of Tibet transplanted to the West Side of Cincinnati. Historically, a Tibetan town monastery served as a hub of spiritual and communal activity. Community members drew religious and spiritual inspiration from the monastery and provided material support for the monks, who focused their efforts on helping all sentient beings.
GSL Monastery continues this tradition by offering classes, meditation practice and special events for those in the community who wish to learn about or study Tibetan Buddhism as a philosophy for life, a spiritual path or a religious practice. Our teachers offer instruction handed down from Shakyamuni Buddha (“The Buddha”) and passed from teacher to student in an unbroken lineage for over 2,500 years.
All are welcome. Our purpose is not to convert individuals to Buddhism. Rather, our intention in offering the teachings is to assist others in attaining happiness and peace.
Your generosity supports our monastery to continue to help many sentient beings and create a foundation of peace and happiness for generations to come.
