October News

Posted on October 7th, 2016 by Laura Roth

We have been delighted with the visit of Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche to Kagyu centers in the Northeast, including Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, where we greeted Rinpoche on Friday, September 30, and enjoyed a teaching on meditation based on the Mahamudra Lineage Prayer on Saturday October 1. Rinpoche last came 18 years ago, and a lot has changed since then, but his buoyant presence and his use of English seemed just the same.

This month Albany KTC will begin offering a series of eight introductory teachings based on Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche’s recent book Excellent at the Beginning; Discovering the Buddhist Way. The series will be taught by senior students. This is very important information for people new to our center and a good review for more experienced practitioners as well. The book is available for sale at the center.

The first two talks will be

Oct. 23: Connecting with the Buddhist teachings, taught by Laura Roth.

Oct. 30: The Practice of Meditation, taught by Laura Roth.
