Dear Dharma Friends,
This week we are on a modified schedule. Lama Kalsang will be traveling to the Boston center to assist Lama Sonam with their 11th Annual Chenrezig Drubchen this upcoming weekend, and will be away for several weeks. Wednesday evening yidam practice is paused until his return. Thursday evening Tea Break is also paused this week for Thanksgiving.
Saturday morning is Vajrasattva practice. This Sunday our practice will include Om Ah Hum practice and 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva.
This year our Annual Sangha Meeting will be held on Sunday, December 10th. We will be having a potluck lunch following a short break after practice. At the meeting the board will talk about what we have accomplished over the last year and what we hope to accomplish in years to come. There will be time for feedback from attendees and open discussion. Everyone is welcome. If you are able to bring a vegetarian dish, fruit, or healthy snack for lunch on Sunday December 10th, please take a moment and let us know on the sign up sheet.
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!
