Dear Dharma friends,

 
Tuesday 5/29 7 PM Saka Dawa.  Please join us on this most sacred Buddhist holiday where we celebrate the birth, enlightenment and parinirvana of Shakyamuni Buddha. It is said that the merit of any good deeds performed during this month are multiplied many times over so this is an excellent time to practice doing positive deeds.
 
Sunday 6/3
  • 9 AM Medicine Buddha sadhana.
  • 10:00 shamata (tranquility) meditation and tonglen (compassion) meditation
  • 11:00 Lama Zopa teaching 7 Line Prayer of Guru Rinpoche
Wishing you a blessed week.
 
Yours in the Dharma,
 
Mary Ann Duncan
