TRTCC Upcoming Practices, July 5 – July 10

Dear Dharma Friends,

Lama Kalsang has returned from Boston and so our regular practice schedule will resume this week. We have one special practice in addition to the regular schedule — Saturday July 9 is Guru Rinpoche Day (10th day of the Tibetan lunar calendar) and we will have Guru Rinpoche practice and Tsok at 7pm.

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