Gar Drolma Buddhist Learning And Meditation
What is Buddhism?
Buddhism is the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, who was born into a royal family in northern around 2500 years ago. He realized that wealth and luxury did not guarantee happiness so he explored the different teachings, religions and philosophies of the day to find the key to happiness. After many years of study and meditation he finally found â€˜the middle pathâ€™ and became enlightened. After enlightenment he taught what he learned until his death at the age of 80.
Our Vision and Mission Statement
ShrineHISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE Gar Drolma Buddhist Center was founded in 2002 by His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, a high lama in the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The center has authentic Buddhist teachers, both in residence and visiting, who represent a pure and unbroken lineage of Buddhist training.
Our community center is dedicated to sharing and sustaining Buddhist teachings and practices, through the unbroken lineage of Drikung Kagyu teachers and visiting teachers from other lineages as well. Our doors are open to all who seek a deeper, truer, more significant experience of life from the general public to Buddhist practitioners of all levels.
In keeping with the bodhisattvaâ€™s vow to alleviate the suffering of all sentient beings, our mission is to be a source of spiritual refuge, respite and wellness to all who choose to come through our doors. For those who seek guidance on the Buddhist path, we will provide it. For those with a secular interest in meditation and wellness, we will share our knowledge. For those who want to alleviate suffering, we will offer assistance based upon our experience and practice of teachings, including the Four Noble Truths and the laws of cause and effect or karma. In addition, we want to be a trusted neighbor and valued community resource.
