A DHARMAKAYA PROGRAM
This program is temporarily suspended in accordance with New York State recommendations. We will reconvene as soon as possible.
A perfect opportunity to study and practice in community, this free Sunday afternoon program is open to all who are interested. Under the guidance of Khenchen Rinpoche, we practice sitting meditation and a compassion practice designed to nurture inner strength and help us grow spiritually. We then discuss a specific Buddhist text and related topics in depth; we may pursue a single text over the course of a year or more.
You may attend any or all parts of the program, as your time and interest permit. No reservations are required, but if you have not joined us before, please let us know you are coming.
You are also welcome to come early to join us for lunch from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, but please reserve ahead so we know to expect you.
