Mangalam Center is a place to learn, grow, and explore in the heart of downtown Berkeley. We host courses, lectures and other public events for the Berkeley community, as well as programs, seminars and academic conferences for a scholarly audience. Mangalam Center was founded by Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku and is rooted in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. However, we host a broad array of both Buddhist and non-Buddhist events, often co-sponsored by one of our partner organizations.
Mangalam Center is dedicated to fostering knowledge for the benefit of the local community and all humanity. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Mangalam Center is home to a number of different organizations. Each has a different purpose and mission, but we are all working together for the benefit of the Berkeley community and all beings.
Mangalam Center is also affiliated with our neighbor, Dharma College, which offers courses that explore the mind and self.
