The Center has regular program for dharma study and meditation practice every week. Dharma is always useful and practical application when we face difficulties, specially in our mind. So dharma study and practice means how to bring inner peace and joy for oneself and others. It is wisdom and insight to choose the right cause for happiness for this life and next.

Unbroken practice is like a watchful guard.   It is simply unscattered and is free from accepting or rejecting.  There is no duality of things to be abandoned and thus, no need for their antidotes.  This is my heart's advice.

(from Drikung Bhande Dharmaradza)

Direction to our Center




May I carry out the vow of Manjushri to totally purify the practice of good;
Tireless through all future ages, may I fulfill all those tasks.
May there be no limits to practice, and no limit to virtues;
Persisting in infinite practices, I know all their miraculous creations.
As long as the earth exists, as long as all beings exist,
As long as acts and afflictions exist, so long will my vow remain.
Let me give the Buddhas all worlds in the ten directions adorned with jewels.
Let me give celestials and humans supreme happiness for eons as many as atoms.
By whatever virtue I accumulate, having invoked the vow to practice good.
May the pure aspiration of the world be at once all fulfilled.
By the endless surpassing blessing realized from dedication to the practice good,
May worldlings submerged in the torrent of passion go to the higher realm of Infinite Light.
(from the Flower Ornament Scripture)
