Kunde (pronounced: kün-dey, spelled: ཀུན་བདེ།) Institute, a center for Tibetan wellness and healing, was founded by Doctor Yangdron Kalzang in 2004. The name “Kunde” was given to the center by her root teacher, Kenpo Troru Tsenam Rinpoche, one of the most highly respected scholars of traditional Tibetan Medicine in Tibet. In Tibetan, “Kunde” means “may all beings be healthy, wealthy and happy.” Dedicated to the mission of benefiting all people with affordable, integrative health services, Kunde offers a variety of traditional Tibetan and Asian medical modalities. Offices are located in Daly City and Berkeley.
