Want to find out more about Buddhism, but don’t know where to start? This program is for you—whether you’re just curious about what a Buddhist mediation center is like or you’ve been thinking about learning more about Buddhism. Our Newcomers Orientation is a relaxed introduction to our center and our programs. Come for a tour. Come with your questions. All are welcome.

Join Khenpo as he leads a discussion from his book "Learning Buddhism: Source of Temporary and Permanent Happiness, is a condensed compilation that reflects the essence of the Buddha's teachings, as well as the commentaries and treatises of all the great learned one's who followed. It is a compilation that will be useful for the current times, and particularly for those who have sincere interest in the Buddhadharma.


WHITE TARA & ACHI PRACTICE
Time: 10:00-11:15am
Teachers: Khenpo Samdup

White Tara is always depicted as a peaceful deity. Her special function is to promote long life, both for the practitioner and for others. Ultimately, she is the very nature of the dharmakaya, and her practice is a means for attaining liberation. (more info...)

Mother Achi was the grandmother of Lord Jigton Sumgon, founder of the Drikung Lineage. To this day she remains a great dharma protector of the Buddha's teachings. Although Achi has a particular commitment to protect the Drikung Kagyu, she is recognized and practiced by all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. (more info...)
