Dear Dharma Friends,

Lama Kalsang departed for Nepal early this morning and until his return in mid May we will be on a modified practice schedule. This week our Wednesday evening yidam practice is on pause. Thursday Evening Tea Break is also paused this week – April 4 – and will be paused on April 25. Saturday morning is Vajrasattva practice at 9am. This Sunday at 10am our practice will be Om Ah Hum and 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva.

On April 19, 20, and 21 TRTCC will be hosting teachings and an Amoghapasha Chenrezig transmission that will be given by Tulku Sherdor, a world-renowned teacher, scholar, and translator in Tibetan Buddhism and the founder of Blazing Wisdom Institute in New York. He has studied with many preeminent masters of the 20th century, including Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dung Say Trinley Norbu Rinpoche, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Kalu Rinpoche, and many others, and we’re excited to be welcoming him to our center!
