” Like molding dough in your hand, you can definitely turn your mind whichever way you want.” Lama Zopa Rinpoche


Welcome to Namdrol Ling Study Group. We are a Tibetan Buddhist group located in Miami Beach, FL, founded in October 2015 to offer classes on Meditation techniques and the philosophy of Buddhism. We are delighted to be able to be part of a worldwide organization (FPMT) that is dedicated to spreading the Dharma (the teachings of the Buddha) to as many beings as possible.

Buddhist or non-Buddhist, it does not matter, the practice is what is important! You don’t need to change your religious beliefs to adopt this philosophy of love, kindness, compassion, wisdom and gratitude; and to rid yourself of all the negative emotions like jealousy, anger, dissatisfaction, and attachment. Let’s do it together and help each other achieve a little more contentment everyday. Rid yourself of clouds that cover your mind and let your light shine.

“One thing about Buddhism is that it’s very simple and practical in that it explains logically how satisfaction comes from the mind, not from some kind of supernatural being in whom you have to believe. Therefore, if you want true peace, happiness and joy, you need to realize that happiness and satisfaction come from within you and stop searching so fanatically outside. You can never find real happiness out there. Whoever has?”- Lama Thubten Yeshe.

What is Meditation?

Tibetan for meditation (gom) has the literal meaning of “familiarization.” Familiarity means habitual patterns of thought and behavior. In meditation we seek to become more familiar with the positive and less familiar with the negative, more familiar with what brings happiness and satisfaction in life and less familiar with what brings suffering and unhappiness. In Buddhism, the real purpose of meditation is to transform the mind by gradually decreasing the negative/harmful aspects and increasing the positive/beneficial aspects, bringing greater peace and satisfaction in life.  (extract from FPMT meditation 101 course)
