Highlights for July, 2016

Posted on June 28th, 2016 by Laura Roth

Please note: Lama Zopa will not be teaching in July as he will be away and on retreat for most of the month. Our schedule of offerings will be lighter this summer. Long Green Tara Practice and Guru Rinpoche tsoks (feast offerings) will resume in September.

On Saturday, July 16th, at 9:30AM, group Ngondro for those qualified.

On Sunday, July 31st, at noon, instead of a teaching, we will hold our Annual Summer Picnic at the Colonie Town Park, near the Mohawk River. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share.

Save the date: On Saturday, August 13th, translator David Karma Choephel will be back to Albany KTC to give a more detailed teaching on the Heart Sutra in 2 sessions. His first teaching was wonderful, but the time was too limited. This will be good.

Sunday Programs at 11:15AM

July 3rd: No special program after the 10AM sitting, due to the holiday weekend.

July 10th: Question & Answer session, led by Joan. This weekend is the North American Kagyu Monlam, being held at Karma Thubten Choling, in Wappingers Falls. Many of our members will be attending the monlam.
