What we're about

We are a Tibetan Buddhist sangha and the purpose of the meetup is to provide a forum for people to come into contact with the Dharma and meditation practice. Our Tuesday and Wednesday sessions are geared towards curious folks who have never stepped into a Buddhist temple, though we also draw experienced practitioners who have been doing this for decades. It's usually a lively mix and everyone is welcome. We ask that first-timers arrive a few minutes early for a quick orientation before practice begins.

Virtual Book Study - Bardo: Interval of Possibility

Needs a location

10:00-10:30am

Book Study New Title starting April 1st Bardo: Interval of Possibility by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche Commentary on “Aspiration for the Bardo” by Chokyi Wangchuk

Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche gives an exceptionally clear and lucid explanation of Aspiration for the Bardo, graciously giving the necessary time and attention to its more obscure points. His commentary, however, is not merely a bare description of the sequence of events in the process of dying and death, but is underscored throughout with the purpose and urgency of aspiration. We are clearly instructed on what to practice and how to train ourselves at every point of opportunity, "whether in the waking state or the dream state" and even within the interval experience itself.
