Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig) Compassion Practice is on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 11am. The Practice of Avalokiteshvara was given by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and is best described in his book,” The Union Mahamudra and Dzogchen.”  It is easily learned and one can give rise to the energy of Compassion through chanting and meditating with this practice.

On Ganapuja days please bring a food offering to share with everyone.  We try to have offerings that are described as nibbles or appetizers, something that is edible with out silverware! If you are not familiar with the practice you can still participate and be part of the practice energy.  

In the Vajrayana Guru Rinpoche is regarded as  the second Buddha. He arrived in Tibet from Oddiyana, the present day Swat Valley in Pakistan around 780 CE at the invitation of King Trisong Detsen.  Guru Rinpoche established Tantric Buddhism firmly in Tibet where he is revered as a totally enlightened being, a buddha. Through his form, primordial wisdom manifests in the world to benefit all sentient beings. His manifestation is beyond time and always available to those who follow his teachings.
