Mission Statement

At Dharma College, our mission is to translate ancient wisdom into everyday life. Using whatever circumstances we encounter as an opportunity for growth, we begin to manifest the extraordinary potential of being. These uncertain times provide perfect conditions to discover what is holding us back from ever-available freedom. As we come to understand mind and self more deeply, we can open awareness, engage more closely with experience, and find a rich source for inner development. This mission governs all of our work here at the College. As both a place for learning and a community of those who share similar interests, Dharma College is creating a vibrant environment, a place for work, and serious inner and outer study. Inviting wisdom into our lives depends on our taking the first step when the right conditions arise. We open our gates to you with the wish that we may take this journey together.

Description

Ancient Roots - Modern Conditions

Founded by Venerable Tarthang Tulku, one of the first traditionally trained Tibetan Buddhist masters to settle in America, Dharma College is neither
a typical American college nor a traditional Dharma Center. Situated at the crossroads of Eastern spirituality and Western intellectual pursuits, our program blends aspects of psychology, philosophy, spirituality and science, with a focus on practical application in everyday life.

The format of our classes is interactive and discussion-based. Awareness practices along with contemplations bring balance to the open dialogue, study, and conceptual inquiry we engage in. Without being subject to dogma or proselytizing, without long hours of meditation or religious rituals, students develop a deeper understanding of mind, reality, and self and can effectively transform their way of being. Dharma College is here to serve everyone who is interested in pursuing inner knowledge and living a more meaningful life.
