Yes! You can use the _filters notation, documented here. You'll need to use one filter parameter for each filter you want to bring over.

It works like this:

dimension: name { link: { label: "Business Pulse By State Dashboard" url: "{{ _filters['users.state'] | url_encode }}&Age={{ _filters['users.age'] | url_encode }}" }}

Notice that State and Age are the names of the dashboard-level filters on the new dashboard, whereas users.state and users.age are actual fields that were being filtered on in the old dashboard.
