Drukpa Kagyu Center of Tibetan
Buddhism was founded in 1986 in Buenos Aires, Argentina by
The Eighth Kyabje Dorzong Rinpoche and His Eminence Drugu Choegyal Rinpoche,
and has been directed by Gerardo Abboud since then. At present
it has branches in Bariloche, Tandil and Rosario.
In all these Centers regular meetings
are held for the practice and study of Tibetan Buddhism.
In 1997 Dongyuling in Tandil completed
the construction of the first Stupa in Argentina. This monument,
representing Buddhas enlightened mind, was consecrated
that same year by His Eminence Drugu Choegyal Rinpoche during his fourth
visit to this country.
On december 2005, another Stupa was consecrated in San Carlos de Bariloche by
His Eminence the Ninth Drukpa Choengon Rinpoche Chokyi Senge.
