Our Vision – A Dedicated Full-Time Buddhist Center

Growing the seeds of Dharma

Thank you for your help in establishing a full-time Buddhist center here in Carbondale, Colorado.

Support our Vision of a Resident Teacher

Ven. Gyalten Samten

We excited to announce that Venerable Gyalten Samten has accepted our request to come to Carbondale and become our resident teacher! In order to do this, we need to raise the financial support necessary to fund our center and provide for Venerable.

Update! We are excited and grateful to announce that we have received a matching grant up to $20,000. Every dollar donated will be doubled up to $20,000.

Our goal right now is to raise $20,000 to match the grant and have 100 spiritual friends (spiritual friends set up monthly recurring donations in any amount to support the center) by the end of the year. If you can, please consider making a one-time donation or become a spiritual friend.


Amount raised: $2078 as of 12/6/2018 at 5:00 pm Mountain Time.

You can make a one-time or recurring tax-deductible donation using the donation button below. Thank you for all of your kindness and generosity.

You can also make a tax-deductible donation by check:

The Way of Compassion Dharma Center is the first of its kind in the Roaring Fork Valley. It is a gathering place for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike to listen to, study, and meditate on the teachings of the Buddha. As a traditional center, we never charge for the Dharma and offer all of our teachings a donation basis.

Our center also gives our community the opportunity to host visiting teachers such as Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi, Venerable Thubten Semkye from Sravasti Abbey, the monks of Gaden Shartse Monastery, Venerable Gyalten Samten, and others.

We invite you to join us!

Together we can grow and nurture the seeds of compassion and wisdom here in the Western Slope of Colorado!
