TRTCC Upcoming Practices, August 30 – September 3

Dear Dharma Friends,
Our practices this week are on the regular schedule. Wednesday evening yidam practice is Green Tara, Thursday evening will be Tea Break, Saturday morning will be Vajrasattva practice, and because it is the first week of the month our Sunday practice will be Jigten Sumgon Guru Yoga.

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!

Wednesday, August 30, 7pm. Green Tara Practice. Online and in person. Green Tara, the meditation deity in female form, embodies the wisdom energies of compassionate fearlessness. This yidam practice helps us remove fears and obstacles, and cultivates the connection to her feminine energy of compassion and wisdom through visualization and chanting.   Join us on Zoom.

Thursday, August 31, 7pm, Evening Tea Break. Online only. A time just to talk about dharma with dharma friends. Beginners are very welcome. Join us on Zoom.

Saturday, September 2, 9am. Vajrasattva Practice. Online and in person. This is a foundational and ongoing training to purify our negative actions, mental disturbances, harmful tendencies and mistaken views by invoking the yidam Vajrasattva in a meditative visualization practice. Join us on Zoom.

Practice will include recitation of the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, Om Ah Hung practice and meditation, and Jigten Sumgon Guru Yoga practice led by Ven. Lama Kalsang.
