Profile: Ven. Thupten Donyo

Tibetan Monk, Venerable Thupten Donyo, befriended and toured with the legendary rock band The Grateful Dead in the late 1980’s. He liked the United States so much, that he eventually settled in San Jose where he converted a suburban home into a temple and founded The Gyuto Vajrayana Center. The center is not only a place for worship for local Buddhist, but also a learning center of Tibetan history and language.
