What we're about

Almost every Sunday (please check our calendar) we offer a class on meditation instruction and practice. The class generally practices "calm abiding" (shiney/samatha) meditation, which is the art of calming the mind as taught in Tibetan Buddhism. We also investigate "insight" (lag-tong/vipashyana), the meditation practice that enables deeper insight into the nature of self and the world to positively transform our relationship with ourselves and with others. No experience is needed. All are welcome, including you.

We follow the teachings of the Palyul Lineage of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Visit our website at http://www.palyuldc.org/

Discovering Meditation and Ritual

A Center For Relationships

This group meets almost every Sunday (be sure to check our calendar) to present, discuss and practice the foundations of Buddhist practice. Our methods are based on the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism in accordance with our teachers’ guidance. (For more information check our website using the link below.) A foundation for meditation practice is laid with the techniques of "calm abiding" (shamatha) meditation. This practice is augmented with the Four Immeasurables, "sending and receiving" (tonglen), and other techniques. We present, discuss and engage with the practices. We build on these basics with the methods of "insight" (vipashyana) meditation. No experience is needed; all are welcome; no prerequisites. There will be time for question and answers. Participants are encouraged to supplement the series with their own study and practice.

Shower of Blessings -- a Guru Yoga practice

A Center For Relationships

The Shower of Blessings sadhana... https://www.lotsawahouse.org/tibetan-masters/mipham/shower-of-blessings ...is a widely practiced Tibetan Buddhist sadhana (liturgy) composed by Lama Mipham Rinpoche [masked]), a great master of the Nyingma ("Ancient Ones") tradition. Guru Rinpoche ("Precious Teacher"), a symbol of our own inherent wisdom, is the perfect embodiment of compassionate skillful means. By venerating Guru Rinpoche we invoke that warmth in order to melt the ice of our rigid egotism, the identity that we cling to.
