"The Land" is now Dharmadhara

At a special sangha gathering on March 5th, the San Francisco Buddhist Center announced that our five-acre property formerly known as “The Land” has been named “Dharmadhara,” which means Dharma mountain.

Dharma: The path of practice taught by the Buddha

Dhara: Holding, bearing, carrying, wearing, possessing, having, keeping (also in memory), sustaining, preserving, observing, and by extension or example it can be the earth, a mountain, a womb, or a mass of gold or heaps of valuables (representing the earth).

Watch this space for more details! We hope to meet you soon at Dharmadhara.
