  • 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 initiation that will be given by Gyumé Khensur Rinpoche at DNKL is related to the highest form of Buddhist Tantric practice, known as Anuttarayoga Tantra, which means literally the “Tantra that is the unsurpassed form of spiritual practice” (T: rnal ’byor bla na med pa’i rgyud). Among the tutelary deities included in this level of practice, this initiation will be a form of the deity whose Sanskrit name is Vajra Bhairava, which in Tibetan is Dorje Jikché (T: rDo rje ’jigs byed). This deity is also known by the Sanskrit name Yamāntaka, which in Tibetan is Shinjé shé (T: gZhin rje gshed). Among the several forms in which this deity’s instructions are practiced, this initiation will be for the form of Vajra Bhairava that is known as the Solitary Hero (S: ekavīraḥ, T: dpa bo gcig pa).

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.
