Hello, Friends of the Dharmachakra Buddhist Center:

The move to our new location, 923 Crossley Road, Palm Springs 92264, is almost complete.  With the view of the shrine, the beautiful, larger Gompa, our comfortable community room and much-expanded book store we are starting to feel at home.

If you havent registered for our opening event with Gen Kelsang Rigpa please do so. The event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to help us promote the event please participate in the following:

• Forward this email to anyone who would be interested.

• Post the event website link in your facebook timeline and share with all your friends.

• Pick up some beautiful flyers at the Center and put them in your favorite coffee shop, dry cleaners, gym etc. There are many places for postcards in Palm Springs!


Our new space will include a larger meditation room to accommodate more students as well as an expanded bookstore and community room. We are now more centrally located to serve the people of Coachella Valley with teachings on Buddhism and Meditation. As part of the celebration of this development our National Spiritual Director Gen Kelsang Rigpa will guide a special blessing ceremony and present an inspiring teaching for the opening of our new space.

Registration: Space is limited, pre-registration is required and is open now.  This event is free ~ Donations are being accepted to help cover the costs of this event as well as remaining costs for our new space. 


As you know, Dharmachakra Buddhist Center is a non-profit organization. We are still in need of a few items to complete our space: a simple couch for our community room, and 12 cafe style chairs to go with our new, donated, community room tables.  If you have either of these items please let us know. We are continuing to fundraise for the following items:

According to Buddha all diseases and suffering, mental and physical, are caused by our delusions such as anger. Normally these delusions feel deeply ingrained, but through connecting to Medicine Buddha we can experience the pure nature of our mind, and heal ourselves of these inner diseases.

This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. More Information.


Weekly Classes at Dharmachakra Buddhist Center

The purpose of these classes is to gain personal experience of inner peace through the practice of meditation. This month we will focus on meditations to develop a kind heart as well as learn a profound healing meditation.


In this series learn basic Buddhist view, intention, and action, and how to follow the Buddhist way of life in the modern world. This class is perfect for anyone interested in Buddhism and meditation. Thursdays at 7pm with Kadam Michelle.


Each week learn one of the twenty-one Buddhist meditation practices presented in the New Meditation Handbook. These meditations are actual methods to control our mind and experience lasting inner peace. Fridays, 10am

Many people are looking for a safe  and tranquil place to bring their spiritual beliefs and to work towards peace, happiness, and kindness for all beings throughout the world. Many people simply want to develop a happier more peaceful mind and outlook. Join us each Sunday for teachings, meditations and prayers for world peace.
