TRTCC Upcoming Practices, February 8 – 11

Dear Dharma Friends,

Lama Kalsang will be traveling until mid-February, and we will be running on a modified schedule until his return. Wednesday evening yidam practice is on hold. Thursday is Evening Tea Break at 7pm on Zoom. Saturday morning is Lama Chöpa practice for Losar at 9am (see below). This Sunday at 10am our practice will be 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva and Om Ah Hum.

This Saturday, February 10, is Losar (Tibetan New Year 2151, Year of the Wood Dragon) and we will be doing Lama Chöpa practice for an auspicious start to the New Year. Following practice there will be a casual potluck, so please feel free to bring whatever healthy / vegetarian dish you may like!

As we noted during the annual meeting we have set up a form to gather responses and feedback from those who are able to offer their time and energy in volunteering to help take care of the many tasks and chores that keep TRTCC alive and growing. There is no obligation required – your response will help us to understand and coordinate our volunteer efforts.
