The Dharma Centre of Canada
is a non-sectarian organization dedicated to awakening compassion, awareness and wisdom. Founded by the Venerable Namgyal Rinpoche in 1966, the Dharma Centre of Canada is an extended community which maintains a study and meditation facility north of Toronto. Our Kinmount facility can be rented by groups for retreats or workshops, and by individual practitioners of meditation. All approaches to meditation and faith traditions are welcome. There is a temple with a large teaching and meeting space, a kitchen and dining room in the Main House, a tea-room and washrooms in a separate building nearby, and residences accommodating up to 40 people. The property covers 400 acres of beautiful woodlands and meadows with walking trails, a river with its beaver dams, marshes, and lakes.
is a Society for Eastern and Western Studies and is based on Galiano Island, in Bristish Columbia, Canada. ‘Buddha dharma’, in its widest sense, means simply ‘the laws that underlie the awakening of human beings’, and it cannot be confined to any particular religion or culture. Though we recognize the value and necessity of preserving and supporting traditional forms, our primary concern is with furthering the inevitable development of a Western expression of Buddhism.
