Ocean Beach from The Dharma Center

Dharma Center of Trikaya Buddhism in San Diego exists to share the Dharma — the teachings of meditation and mindfulness — and to assist in the Awakening of those who wish to free themselves of suffering.

Our meditation hall and community of members provides a sanctuary from the turbulent world, where students at all levels can deepen and refine their connection to Light.

We believe self-discovery is not about idolizing some unobtainable ideal, but rather spiritual practice is about discovering our divine nature and becoming the highest, most authentic expression of Light possible. In short, the Path is about becoming who you really are.

We welcome you to join us at class, on Member adventures, and in our mission to Awaken, one moment at a time.

About Dharma Center of Trikaya Buddhism

Established in 1998, Dharma Center is based in the Rama Lineage, sharing the practices of Trikaya Buddhism. Each teacher has earned the wisdom they share through their own experiences on the Path. Teachers offer their own style, which provides students the opportunity to find a teacher with whom they resonate. Rama, who taught meditation practice to thousands of Americans in the latter part of the 20th century, initiated an extremely diverse group of students into American Buddhist practice. By drawing upon the wealth of spiritual teachings they received from Rama and other great masters from ancient times to the present, Dharma Center teachers built a new Buddhist lineage known as Trikaya Buddhism. Dharma Center of Trikaya Buddhism offer an eclectic and unique approach to spiritual discovery.

Dharma Center of Trikaya Buddhism is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to spiritual growth. We are not affiliated with or financially supported by any other organization and rely completely on the money collected from class participants and members.

30 Second Meditation

Let your eyes soften and gaze at the ocean.
Let the sound of the ocean quiet your thoughts.
Let all distractions, both inner and outer, pass by like the rolling waves.
Rest in the stillness within you.
