The vision of The Center for Wisdom and Compassion was to preserve and make available the wealth of teachings from the Buddhist tradition of Tibet, as openly and widely as possible, and in forms most attuned to the lives and needs of modern men and women, while also offering those following the Buddhist teachings a complete path of study and practice, along with the environment they need to explore the teachings to their fullest. The Center is part of an international network of Rigpa centers and groups in sixteen countries around the world under the guidance of Sogyal Rinpoche. It has now been sold to the Town of Berne and has become the Switzkill Farm. Directions to the Center: From Route 443 at the stop sign and a 'T' in the road in Berne, turn left to continue on route 443. After the school, bear left onto route 9. Past the fire house, turn left onto route 1. Go for approximately 3 miles to Game Farm Road which is on the left. If you come to Furman lane, you have gone too far.
