Uplifting Heart of Dharma
Meant for ordinary beings from all walks of life, the Buddha taught how to look at ourselves, others and the world with new eyes and find the truth of existence in our own and others immediate experience. Hand-in-hand and heart-in- heart with this are his teachings of the four great virtues:
The immeasurable states --
- through which we learn to meet ourselves and others in all their variations and conditions, along with the truth of existence.
Join Karma Chime Wongmo in cultivating these boundless states of consciousness that peacefully bring relief from suffering and the dispelling of illusions.
Karma Chime Wongmo has served the Dharma Centre as Resident Teacher for many years and is now its Advisory Teacher. She completed a B.F.A. degree at the U. of M. in Winnipeg, was a head social worker at the YWCA there, and taught school in Toronto after she began studying with Namgyal Rinpoche in 1968.
In 1975, she co-founded The Open Path in Boise, Idaho, where she began teaching the Dharma. While there she published four books, three of which were of Rinpoche’s discourses. In 1980 she received ordination from the H.H. the 16th Karmapa. Upon returning to Canada after a 3-year intensive retreat in the Costa Rican rain forest, she attended and taught at the Dharma Centre’s Seminary and Academy. At Rinpoche’s request, she established Bodhi Publishing and continues to publish his discourses. She has also organised and participated in several rafting trips and other types of explorations of discovery and growth.

What is Dana?
Teachers give the teachings of awakening (Dharma) freely so that anyone, no matter their financial means can attend classes. Each time one receives teachings, it is an opportunity to consciously practice generosity. Giving money and other means of support expresses gratitude and support to the teacher and helps to ensure that these teachings continue. Each person receiving Dharma teachings determines the kind and amount of Dāna according to one’s heart and one’s financial means. When deciding how much to offer, one should think about what these teachings mean to you and try to give accordingly. It is recommended that students make an offering of dāna at the beginning of a class or retreat to establish the intention to make the most of this opportunity for one’s own progression and for the benefit of all others.
