Flowering Dharma (for Education, Ethics, Culture, and Change) is a youth initiative. Our vision is to instill virtues of compassion and ethics to preserve the culture and tradition. We aim to create a common platform to share and learn the different aspects of each other’s culture to strengthen the sense of shared common humanity. Our goal is also to promote the practice of study and reflection in the areas of convergence and divergence between the philosophical stances and modern science. Thus lending a helping hand towards nourishing a healthy mind with its roots in wisdom and compassion.
Flowering Dharma was conceived in the year 2009 by the collective efforts of the students from Ladakh studying in various colleges of Delhi University with the aim to keep the sense of community alive in the big city and later grew to accommodate peers from rest of the country and beyond. Currently we are based in Raku House which is a century old traditional heritage structure in Leh-Ladakh and our activities and members expands to six regions across the country including Ladakh, Jammu, Chandigarh, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh with the plans to bridge pan Himalayan region.
