Iron Knot Ranch

Iron Knot Ranch lies at the end of a long dirt road in the mountains of southern New Mexico, a mere 45 minutes beyond the middle of nowhere.

Established under the guidance of the Tibetan Buddhist master H. E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, Iron Knot Ranch is a developing retreat center founded on the belief that the true nature of all living beings is inherently pure, wise and compassionate and that it is only a pervasive but superficial confusion that prevents us from knowing this to be so.

With this in mind, the work and spiritual practice of Iron Knot Ranch is dedicated to the discovery of this truth in ourselves and others.
