Sweet 16 Unity Celebration Fundraiser

Happy Birthday Rama!!!

The Sweet 16 Unity Celebration we held in San Diego was glorious!!RamaThangka

Both the speakers who shared their current views and projects, and the guests spanned all generations of the years Rama taught. It was quite moving to see all aspects combined and represented, and it was a gift for those who are new to our lineage. We had tried to get one of the newer students to speak, but maybe next time there’s an event like this one will step forward.

New students are finding Dharma Center, and students from all around the world are having amazing Rama visions and experiences… the magic is still present now.

Because of your support, we will have an advertising budget for the first time ever! We still need to add up all the funds collected and subtract the expenses to know our final amount, but I know we’ve at least come out positive. This will allow us to reach out into the world, and find those who are ready to live extraordinary, bright, and happy lives!

Thank you to all of you who attended and supported this effort of Unity and Celebration of Light!

We would like to expand the number of students we reach, and that requires additional funding. So we’re hosting the 2015 Rama Birthday Event as a fundraiser to develop a marketing budget and to celebrate 16 years of meditation classes at Dharma Center. We’ll have a some great vendors and be sure to check out the excellent speakers who will be sharing their wisdom!

Dharma Center’s 16th anniversary will be on the fall equinox this year. However, we wish to celebrate not only Dharma Center and all the people who have made our little meditation hall possible, but also our roots in the Rama Tribe. Therefore, we’ve planned the event to coincide with Rama’s 2015 birthday celebration.

Whether or not you sat with Rama while he was in the body, if you feel a connection to Rama, his teachings, to one of his students, or one of their students, you belong at this event!

“There’s a strength in unity. Unity is oneness, and oneness is the tribe. …As you work together, as you meet together, as you meditate together, then you’re going to create something rather perfect. …To create such a perfect oneness that once again the body is one. The mind is one, the spirit is one. Yet each retains a kind of especially ridiculous individuality which makes it fun.”

~Rama, “The Electronic Tribe”, from the On the Road with Rama series

Dharma Center opened in 1998 to offer affordable meditation and mindfulness classes to the public. In order to keep tuition low, we created a Membership program. Dharma Center Members understand the benefits of meditation, and wish to share it with others. Their support provides the majority of our funding. Members decide on their own level of participation, and many do not live in San Diego. We are always delighted to see Dharma Center Members at the events we host for them throughout the year. You can support us by becoming a Member either through our website.
