The Buddhist UFO Research Center was a New York-based saucerian organisation, founded in the late 1950s by Robert Ernst Dickhoff (who called himself the Sungma Tenzing Lama, among other titles, and authored Agharta: The Subterranean World). The center's stated mission was "to determine the origin of Unidentified Flying Objects, to index and classify such UFO's as being possible Spacecrafts coming from other worlds, other Solar Systems, other Galaxies";[1] and Dickhoff's own writings lend themselves toward a view of the UFO phenomenon as a hostile predation against humans by Venusian garudas residing in underground caverns on Earth.
