Dechen Yonten Dzo Meditation Center is a Nyingma Buddhist practice center established in Boulder in 1982, under the guidance of the Ven. Ri Cham Kusho. Its members practice the Dzogpa Chenpo Longchen Nyingthig cycle of sadhanas, a graduated series of spiritual practices inspired by Guru Padmasambhava. New members begin with the Vajrasattva purification and then go on to a special Short Ngondro composed by H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche.

The teachers spend approximately half of each year in the U.S. The Ven. Jetsun Rinpoche has been recognized as the incarnation of Khandro Yeshe Tshogyal and Machik Lapdrom. The Ven. Ri Cham Kusho is the current Jetsun Rinpoche's mother, and the step-daughter of H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche. For further information, please call 442-0796 in Boulder.
