Our Mission Dharma College is committed to igniting personal and global transformation by helping people unlock the power of their minds. Our interactive classes, which are grounded in both Eastern and Western wisdom traditions, spark the insight students need to change stale mental patterns and make a stronger connection to the world. We encourage the participation of people of all ages and backgrounds, whether spiritual seekers or those simply curious about the possibilities for new, transformative knowledge. As we develop a greater understanding of mind and self, we become more balanced, authentic, and caring human beings. We hope you will consider joining us on this journey to a more meaningful way of life.
Dharma College was founded by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche, a traditionally trained teacher and author in the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and Head Lama of the Tibetan Nyingmapa Meditation Center. Rinpoche was born in 1935 in eastern Tibet, where he studied with many of the greatest Tibetan Buddhist masters of the twentieth century. After leaving Tibet, Tarthang Tulku taught from 1962 to 1968 at Sanskrit University in Varanasi, India, where he also established one of the first printing presses to print sacred Tibetan texts. The first lama of the Nyingma lineage to establish residence in the United States, Rinpoche established a mandala of organizations to actualize his long-range vision of preserving the ancient teachings of the Buddha and transmitting them to the modern world.
