Flowering Dharma Centre is an organization that envisions instilling the virtues of ethics and morality, for the benefit of oneself and others. It was founded on 9th of February 2009 by the Ladakhi students studying in various colleges and universities in Delhi. The objective being ‘bringing about an inner change’ in oneself & others, with the prime focus on the youth by introducing and exposing to the various philosophical backgrounds, study and reflection in the areas of convergence and divergence between these philosophical stances and modern science lends a good hand in nourishing a healthy mind with its roots in wisdom and compassion. As a centre for the study of classical Indian wisdom traditions, our prime objectives are;

  1. Preserving Nalanda Tradition
  2. Inter-Faith Harmony
  3. Educating the Hearts and Minds
  4. Preserving Ladakhi Culture and Tradition
  5. Study the convergence of Philosophy and Modern Science

With the core vision of recreating the spirit of Nalanda, a great university of ancient India in which all traditions of Buddhism were studied and practiced, alongside other schools of classical Indian philosophy (NyayaVaisheshikaSamkhyaYogaMīmāṃsāVedantaJainBuddhist and Cārvāka), arts and sciences, Flowering Dharma Centre works under the guidance of;
