Lotus Speech is an international Buddhist not-for-profit religious organization under the spiritual guidance of the Venerable Changling Tulku Rinpoche. Lotus Speech USA is the third—and newest--national chapter of this organization, following the establishment of Lotus Speech Canada  (incorporated in 2005 as a registered charitable organization in British Columbia, Canada), and Lotus Speech Australia  (incorporated in 2006 as a not-for-profit organization in Victoria, Australia).

Lotus Speech USA is a religious organization in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, with special emphasis on the Northern Treasures and Dzogchen traditions of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism. Our goals is to develop the Nyingma tradition in the United States by providing opportunities for teachings, classes, philosophical study, meditation, translation, retreats and other activities that foster Buddhist teachings and practices, as well as the timeless Buddhist principles of service, compassion and concern for others.
