What we're about

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/2/1/0/e/600_414068462.jpeg

The Center is based on the Gelug lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, the spiritual tradition of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is part of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) (http://fpmt.org/), an international family of city and retreat centers, monasteries, publishing houses, hospices, and healing centers that share that purpose.

This organization is run by individuals dedicated to providing an integral educational experience through which minds and hearts can be transformed into their highest potential for the benefit of all sentient beings. By following an attitude of universal responsibility, we seek to create harmonious environments everywhere and offer these teachings. The spiritual director for the Center is Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

The Center hosts weekly Buddhist teachings, guided meditations, and other related events. It is located at 6165 Ridgeview Court, Suite G in Reno, Nevada.

Book Discussion Group

Dharmakaya Center

9/25: We persist. We learn alongside Ven. Yongey. His training and previous thinking about his 'retreat' contribute significantly to the relationship he is developing and deepening with a world he is only now meeting. All are welcome at any point, whether you have the book, have read any of it, or not. Our shared experiences evolving from the reading are so rich; we welcome you and hope to see you soon. GROUP DESCRIPTION This book discussion group is a gathering of individuals who view, read, study, and discuss various dharma-relevant and reinforcing materials. Anyone can benefit at any point by attending, regardless of background or experience, so don’t hesitate to drop in—whether you know what we are watching, have read the current chapter, or not. We encourage visitors, and we invite them to come over some evening to see what it is all about. IN LOVE WITH THE WORLD Beginning 8/7, the group will begin reading and discussing "In Love with the World" by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche and Helen Tworkov. The story begins with Ven. Yongey's decision to follow the example of ancient Buddhist mendicants, leaving behind his leading roles in three Buddhist abbeys. It is a compelling story of life at the edge of existence, bringing Buddhist training to the modern world, and reconciling inner and outer worlds/lives. This is such a rich story of learning and growth in the most challenging circumstances. Below are links to more information about the book. The more perspectives and voices our discussions include, the more we all learn, so please join us. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/589667/in-love-with-the-world-by-yongey-mingyur-rinpoche/9780525512530/ https://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-525-51253-0 Mingyur Rinpoche has graciously made a study guide available for book groups to utilize as they read "In Love With The World." Please download the ILWTW Study Guide here: https://tergar.app.box.com/s/0mayknhn8yykf30r5i5134uvgul29xmb The Washoe County Library has a copy of "In Love With The World" for anyone who wishes to borrow the book.
