The Dharmachakra Buddhist Center is a non-profit spiritual organization that was established in order to benefit the people of the modern world. Its mission is simple: to help individuals learn how to be happier and calmer by using the teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism. Everyone can benefit from these teachings.
As a member of the New Kadampa Tradition, the DBC promotes the Buddhist values of compassion and wisdom. Our goal is to help people experience personal peace and a sense of meaning in their lives–and to help society develop greater tolerance and acceptance.
As Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the founder of the New Kadampa Tradition, writes: “We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be achieved unless we first establish peace within our own minds. Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible.”
