TRTCC Upcoming Practices, March 15 – 20

Dear Dharma Friends,

A few important changes to note this week as we welcome Lama Kalsang’s return to Pittsburgh:

Beginning this Saturday, March 19, our weekly Saturday morning practice will be Vajrasattva yidam practice, and it will start at 9 a.m.  Also, Basic Buddhism: Practice and Study is moving to Thursday evening at 7 p.m.

We’ve updated our website with new and reorganized content – you may find information on our lineage, practices, lists of important texts, a comprehensive glossary of terms, and more!

Our practices remain online only this week. The board is meeting with Lama Kalsang in a few days and we will discuss the reopening with him before finalizing and sharing the details.

May the illumination of wisdom teachings shine through all obscurations of our mind, and may our practices be beneficial to all beings!
