“Only if we possess a physical building can the center become stable. Then we are able to provide a stable place for beings to study and practice the Buddhadharma. Everyone supporting this will accumulate vast merit through their contribution to this great activity. Even beyond this lifetime, you will gather merit for as long as this place exists. It is like pouring a drop of water into the vast ocean. The drop will remain inseparable from the ocean for as long as the ocean exists.
We are a member-supported organization operating under the precious guidance of His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche. Our center’s mission is to share and sustain Buddhist teachings and practices through the unbroken lineage of Drikung Kagyu teachers and visiting teachers from other lineages. Our goals are to support our monastic community and offer teachings by our local monastics, to continue to invite visiting teachers, to expand offerings to beginners, and to increase our visibility within the local community.
To accomplish these goals, Gar Drolma relies on the generosity of sangha members in Dayton and the surrounding area, as well as the generosity of devotees throughout the United States and around the world.
