“You have a lot of merit, as you have the fortune to learn both the worldly system and the religious system, which is like possessing two open eyes. This wisdom is your inner Buddha. The actual Dharma is love. Everyone needs love. If you truly understand the Dharma, you will generate great love and thus experience great happiness. Thank you for coming and supporting the center.”
Welcome to Gar Drolma!
It is so wonderful that you have met with the dharma and we welcome you to our center. We want to provide an environment at Gar Drolma that is open to all who seek a deeper, truer, more significant experience of life—from the general public to Buddhist practitioners
Our goal is to provide support and offer a range of activities with broad appeal, accommodating participation at every level. 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.
We also understand that when you begin it can sometimes feel like there is so much to learn. In fact, many of us at Gar Drolma remember what it was like to first walk into the center filled with a thirst to learn more about Buddhism but not certain where to even begin, as it can feel so vast. You can choose from meditation classes and meditation practice sessions, traditional Buddhist teachings, book discussions on Buddhist philosophy, and more. We are here for you whatever your level of interest.
If you wish a personal meeting or have any questions at all, please feel free to contact the Mel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at Gar Drolma.
