What we're about
Dharmakaya Miami is a local branch of Dharmakaya the organization which is dedicated to teaching the skills of mental and spiritual awareness that are at the heart of Buddhist practice. The methods are those taught by Buddha over 2500 years ago and passed through the centuries in an unbroken lineage of Tibetan masters.
Dharmakaya was established to preserve and promote the Buddhist philosophy, practice, arts and culture both in the United States and around the world, in accordance with both the theory and practice of Vajrayana Buddhism, under the spiritual authority and leadership of His Eminence Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche. It is registered in New York State of the United States as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit Labrang church of the Trungram Tradition.
We believe that the true nature of every sentient being is pure, complete, and full of quality, so the adventitious experience of sufferings and misunderstandings can be reduced and eradicated if one recognizes the problem and works with its causes with a right method. It believes that the teachings of the Buddha offer the methods that uproot the causes of suffering, activate unconditional happiness and insight, help realize full human potentials, and bring ultimate benefits to many others. Fully understanding the importance of the ancient Buddhist wisdom, we strive to keep the teachings alive with an unbroken lineage of Buddhist masters, and translate them to address the issues of modern spiritual traditions.
Inspired by an attitude of universal responsibility, Dharmakaya offers spiritual guidance through which people's minds can be transformed to their highest potential for the benefit of others.
