  • There are four remedy powers. The one that reduces and purifies negative karma is regret. The stronger the regret, the more the negative karma is purified. All phenomena affect each other; that is what dependent arising means—fire can burn, water can make things wet. It works similarly in our mind: our positive thoughts have one effect; negative thoughts have a different effect. So, there is happiness and there is suffering—this is a dependent arising.

  • Why do we need to Wake Up, Now! and what’s the Buddha’s Wheel of Life have to do with it? Why are we in this situation? Where are we going? Do our lives have any meaning? How should we make use of our lives? How does Buddhism view the position of beings in the world and the ways humans can make their lives meaningful? These questions are addressed in a famous Buddhist painting of a wheel (known as The Wheel of Life) with twenty-one parts that outlines the process of our lives in existence.

  • As followers of Lama Tsonkhapa, the Chotrul Monlam Chenmo is the biggest prayer festival held at DNKL. There are many benefits to observing this day of prayer. According to the Sutra Revealing the Magnificent Miracle Manifestation “...if a follower of the Tathagatas, the Ones Gone to Suchness, with the intention to make offerings to them bears their miraculous manifestation in mind for a moment, and with devotion and aspiration endeavors to make offerings to the Tathagatas in his mind for a day, a night or any amount of time, he gradually will reach beyond the limit of suffering, and will actualize the State of Utter Purity and Excellence, the Completely Perfected Enlightenment.”

  • The need to promote DNKL’s mission of Universal Peace through Tibetan Buddhist teachings is perhaps greater now than in previous years. Like many non-profit organizations closed due to the pandemic, DNKL has responded swiftly with more virtual offerings that are easily accessible and, as always, at no cost. This has allowed for greater global participation and engagement, which is an incredibly positive outcome.

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.
