Buddhism is a psychology of the mind, providing us methods to understand our emotions and how to change our bad habits and thoughts to be happy. The Sunday teachings about how to practice Dharma in daily life, led by our resident teacher, Geshe Gelek Chodha, are appropriate for visitors and students of all levels of study and interest in Buddhism. The session typically includes a brief meditation, prayers, and the rare opportunity to learn from a highly trained Tibetan Buddhist monk. When Geshe-la is away, several senior students typically lead these sessions. The teachings and prayers are offered in English.
If you are unsure when to visit the center for the first time, Sunday is a great time to start. Children are invited to sit on the blue cushions at the front of the gompa, and then are dismissed to their classes after opening prayers.
Additional programming is available after most Sunday sessions - check the calendar for more specific topics and information.
