Meditation, Mindfulness and Mantra with Love, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity.
Palos Verdes Meditation - Tara L.A. is an authorized Dharma group under the direction of Lama Migmar Tseten, Buddhist chaplain at Harvard University, serving Palos Verdes, the South Bay and L.A. Join our regular group to learn beautiful practices of the Buddhist wisdom tradition to develop calm, focus and healing: Shamatha (calm-abiding), Blue Lotus (concentration), Tonglen (love & compassion) and Tara (mantra) practices. Newcomers welcome anytime! We meet Tuesday evenings 7:30-9:00 p.m. in the cozy library of the Pacific Unitarian Church library, 5621 Montemalaga Drive, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90274. Beautiful setting. Free parking and plenty of it! Although these are traditional Buddhist practices, you do not have to be Buddhist to benefit from them. No prior experience is required. All you need to bring is an open mind and a kind heart. We can even help you find those! Through developing our love and compassion for all beings, we can find joy and fulfillment in life. We do this by practicing Shamatha (calm-abiding), Blue Lotus (concentration), Tonglen (sending & receiving) and Green Tara (visualization and mantra) meditations. Our evening routine allows newcomers to learn while regulars deepen their practice. Group practice among friends helps to anchor and encourage one's daily home practice throughout the week. While meditation instruction is always free, donations ($10-$20) to support our ongoing activity are gratefully accepted. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Please arrive early to greet your friends and quietly settle in - we start at 7:30 p.m. sharp. If you can't arrive by 7:30, COME ANYWAY, you are always welcome! Just enter quietly, adjust yourself and join in. Chairs are available. We usually finish by 9:00 p.m., however you are welcome to stay a little to chat until we close up at 9:30 p.m.
