Upcoming Practices, July 13 – 18

Dear Friends,

Lama Kalsang is precious not just to us, but to many Drikung Kagyu centers who ask for his help.  This week he is traveling to Boston to honor a commitment to help with a new center there.  He will join us from Boston for Sunday practice on Zoom.  We will still have Sunday practice at the center while Lama is away.  We’re going to join him from the center on Zoom.

For the benefit of others, we ask that only fully vaccinated people come in to the center.  We’re still keeping attendance on the lower end to make sure there is comfortable spacing for practitioners who attend in person.  To attend in person, please send an email to TRTCC@threeriverstibetancc.org indicating the practice or practices you’d like to attend. We’ll only reply if there isn’t space left.  So no need to wait for a confirming email.

Tuesday, July 13, 7 pm. Introduction to Practice, online only. 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

Saturday, July 17, Basic Buddhism: Practice and Study, Saturday practice is being suspended for four weeks in deference to H.E.
