Dear Dharma Friends,
Lama Kalsang will be traveling until late Wednesday this week and our practices are modified. Wednesday evening yidam practice this week is paused. Saturday and Sunday practices will be on the regular schedule.
With Venerable Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche’s approval, we have made his series of teachings available to be viewed on our YouTube channel. Please note that the Saturday teaching videos are broken out into 3 parts.
If you would like a copy of the Jigten Sumgon Guru Yoga text used for the Sunday June 4 teaching, it is available as a hard copy or pdf including the Guru Yogas of Vajradhara, Marpa, Milarepa, and Gampopa from Vajra Publications.
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!
