Upcoming Practices – June 26 – 29, 2021

Dear Friends,

This week’s Wednesday yidam practice and Thursday Guru Rinpoche practices at the center are cancelled due to Lama Kalsang extending his stay with Chicago Ratna Shri to assist with opening their new center, and a visit with Khenchen Konchog Gyaltsen Rinpoche. We will keep you informed of updates regarding his return to Pittsburgh.

For the continuing benefit of all, attendance at the center is limited during this first stage of our reopening.  To attend any practice at the center please see To Attend Practice In Person below.  Most but not all of the practices will also be online.  The listing for each of the week’s practices will tell you whether it is both at the center and online, at the center only, or online only.  That may change from week to week depending on Lama’s schedule.  

Saturday, June 26, 10 am. Basic Buddhism: Practice and Study, at the center and online. The subject of study is The Wheel of Life.  If you’re attending for the first time, there is a short introduction to the practice at 9:30.

Tuesday, June 29, 7 pm. Introduction to Practice, at the center and online. This class introduces the center’s practices and the philosophy they embody and also offers basic meditation instruction.  This short Introduction to Tibetan Buddhism  would be helpful to read before class.  To join our Tuesday Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85750699668?pwd=c1U2UHBDNndFQi9DOExSSkhWZUN0UT09

To Attend Practice At The Center:

During this initial phase of the center’s reopening, attendance is limited to 5 people.  For the benefit of others we ask that only people who are fully vaccinated come in to the center.  To attend practice in person, please send an email to TRTCC@threeriverstibetancc.org indicating the practice or practices you’d like to attend.  If there is still an open cushion, you’ll get a confirming email about coming in.  If you don’t get that confirmation, please follow the practices online.
