Berkeley's Dharma College world's first happiness educational center to open its door this fall

Berkeley’s new Dharma College will open its doors to students this fall as an educational center dedicated to bringing together seekers and thinkers, scientists, humanists, and spiritual leaders from throughout the Bay Area and around the world to explore the nature of the human mind and its transformative potential. Its classes are open to the general public and are welcoming to adults of all backgrounds and beliefs.

Inaugural six-week courses begin October 3 and run through November 10, 2012. Dharma College courses will encourage individuals to explore and develop their inner resources and to awaken a more positive way to experience the world.

Dharma College and its sister downtown organizations were founded by Tibetan Buddhist Lama Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche, a refugee who fled his homeland in 1959 and settled in Berkeley in 1969.

A fullytrained Master Teacher in the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and author of over two-dozen books, he has devoted his lifelong efforts to preserving Tibetan Buddhist culture and bringing its profound teachings to the West. Since 1978, he has been on permanent retreat at Odiyan, a monastery in Sonoma County.
