TRTCC Upcoming Practices, October 25 – 29

Dear Dharma Friends,

Our practices this week are on our regular schedule.  Wednesday evening yidam practice this week is Green Tara. Thursday evening is Evening Tea Break, and Saturday morning will be Vajrasattva practice. This Sunday our practice will include  Achi Chokyi Drolma and 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva. 

This year our Annual Sangha Meeting will be held on Sunday, December 10th. We will be having a pot luck lunch this year – more details to follow but just putting it out there so it’s on your radar!

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, October 25, 7pm. Green Tara Practice. Online and in person. Green Tara, the meditation deity in female form, embodies the wisdom energies of compassionate fearlessness.
