We believe that the true nature of every sentient being is pure, complete and full of good qualities. Yet often that true nature lies dormant, and as a result, people suffer. Our goal is to help people everywhere awaken their inner nature. Through Buddhist teachings and practices, they can learn to uncover and embrace their inner-goodness, alleviating their suffering and, in the process, finding wisdom, awareness, and peace.External suffering and misunderstanding can be reduced—even eradicated—once the problem is recognized and its causes addressed. Buddha’s teachings offer the methods that uproot the causes of suffering, activating unconditional happiness and insight. This not only helps individuals realize their full potential, it benefits all those they encounter.
These vital teachings have been preserved through an unbroken lineage of Buddhist masters; today, Dharmakaya keeps them alive, translating them to address the issues of the modern world.
The Dharmakaya organization was established to preserve and promote Buddhist philosophy, practice, arts and culture in the United States and around the world. We are registered in New York State of the United States as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Labrang Church of the Trungram Tradition.
