This Dharma community's main purpose is to, in the world in general and in Finland and other western countries in particular, benefit temporarily and ultimately the minds of sentient beings, by clarifying the path and means of finding true happiness and peace. This constitutes the origin of all happiness, the root of peace and happiness in the world, the true remedy for the three poisons or disturbing emotions, the perfect path that liberates from the truth of the suffering of samsara. The basis of Buddhadharma is to go for refuge, with heartfelt intent, to the three Jewels as well as generating loving-kindness, compassion, bodhicitta or mind of enlightenment and perfect view. This is practiced through listening, reflecting and meditating on the scriptures of both Sutra and Tantra. Also, at all times and in all places, in accordance with one's capability, to solely act for the benefit of others or to at least make the promise to do so and to engage in positive actions through the three doors of body, speech and mind for the benefit of others.

Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche was born in 1975 as a son of Venerable Lama Thubten Kalsang and Yongdu Wangmo, and he was recognized by H.H. Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche as the 3rd reincarnation of Gegong Rokza Sonam Palge Rinpoche. He studied in the college of Mindrolling Monastery, and graduated as a certificated sutric and tantric holder of teachings. Currently he is the spiritual director of the Danakosha Dharma community. His great kindness and generosity of teachings is truly appreciated by his students.
Danakosha has gotten a wonderful place, Danakosha Ling, in Jokioinen, the mid-point of the three major cities in south-western Finland. We emphasize being an authenthic Buddhist center for study and practice for students from all over the world, and particularly in northern Europe, where there are very few Tibetan Buddhist centers. In the new center we will offer summer courses and annual retreats, such as traditional drubchen retreats and many other events. The work is currently under way to establish symbolic monuments of Buddhism there, such as temples, stupas, mani wheels, etc., as well as all necessary facilities such as a dormitory etc. Read more about the ongoing construction works here, and join us in realizing this extraordinary project.
