Harford-Baltimore County Buddhist Meditation & Study Grouphttp://www.meetup.com/North-Central-Maryland-Buddhist-Meditation-and-Study-Group/http://photos1.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/8/9/a/global_181982202.jpeg20121122
This Meditation and Study Group is a group belonging to the Palyul School of Tibetan Buddhism. Palyul is one of the six great "mother monasteries" following the Nyingma School, or Ancient Translation Tradition, of Tibetan Buddhism. The monastery was founded in 1665 in the Kham province of eastern Tibet (present-day Baiyu, Sichuan, China) by Kunzang Sherab, the First Palyul Throne Holder.
The purpose of this study group is to offer regular meditation opportunities along with classes lead by Palyul Khenpos (Professors) or senior students. Classes are taken from the Palyul Shedra (University) as well as material compiled from the International Buddhist College (such as our Buddhism 101 class).
Meditation sessions include traditional sitting/walking meditation as well as sessions for Palyul students working on specific practices (such as Ngondro). Regular celebration practices will also be conducted, such as feast offering practices and holiday practices. All of this means there will be opportunities for people who are interested in simply meditating as well as practice opportunities for people who wish to take their meditation practice to the next level!
