Mission and Vision

DNKL promotes Universal Peace through Tibetan Buddhist teachings in order to create enlightened world citizens who work to end the suffering of all beings.

 

Under the guidance of Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa, Do Ngak Kunphen Ling Tibetan Buddhist Center for Universal Peace draws on the spiritual tradition of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the humanitarian visions of Maurice Pate to achieve the following goals:

1. Conduct classes on Buddhist philosophy and meditation on a regular basis. Since the heart of Buddhist meditation is nonsectarian in nature, the classes will be open to people of all religious traditions and to those with no particular religious affiliation.

2. Offer systematic and graduated levels of training in Buddhist moral discipline, meditative concentration, and transformative wisdom so that participants can incorporate such thought and practice in their daily lives. The courses will be based on the tradition of Buddhist Sutra and Tantra that enjoys an unbroken lineage of transmission from the time of Shakyamuni Buddha.

3. Conduct short and long-term retreats and facilitate solitary retreats.

4. Host public talks, spiritual festivals, and other community events where families can participate.

5. Engage in the community with humanitarian events such as partnerships with secular organizations, share the Buddhist perspective on compassion with local universities, support initiatives in social and emotional learning education, offer children’s programs, and provide aid to Tibetan monks and children with basic education and health needs.

Learn The Meaning of
Do Ngak Kunphen Ling

We've loosely translated it as "Tibetan Buddhist Center for Universal Peace": A place where sutra and tantra are combined for the good of all. But there is much more to the meaning and where it comes from.
