Dear Dharma Friends,
Lama Kalsang is expected to return to Pittsburgh tomorrow! Our Wednesday evening yidam practice and Sunday Achi Chokyi Drolma practices are back on this week’s schedule.
In the event of travel delays or any other difficulties that would affect either of these practices, we will send an email update to notify you of the change.
Please note: the CDC has listed our community transmission level as low, and masks are optional for our in person practices at the center. We do ask that only fully vaccinated people come in to the center. We will be running the air purifier in the common area. If you are not feeling well or have had a recent exposure to Covid, please ensure that you are negative with a home test before coming in or join us online.
May the illumination of wisdom teachings shine through all obscurations of our mind, and may our practices be beneficial to all beings!
