A great way to get Dharma connected in New York!

We meet at the Rubin every Friday, except for summers. During the summer months, we meet at the Rubin the last Friday of each month, but special events will be announced like "Dharma Drink at the Beach or the Park" plus special group visits to see amazing teachers as they come to NYC over the summer! Should be awesome!!!

SUMMER NOTICE: We're meeting the First Friday of June, July and August at the Rubin, for other Fridays we'll post special events.

For people interested in Buddhism or meditation or just leading a kinder life who are up for meeting like minded people.

Dharma Drink is now Self Service!

The table is always reserved in the same spot - just show up and see what happens - just like if you were hanging out meeting other Buddhists and travelers randomly in Kathamandu, India, Japan, Korea... And don't take the RSVP too seriously - people are coming now who don't RSVP. The word is getting out....

Everyone is invited! Dharma Drink is all about building community amongst the Buddhist and like minded crowd in New York City. Greg, the founder, was inspired to start Dharma Drink by hanging out with all of the great students of all of the different lamas in Kathmandu - Kagyu, Nyingma, Sakya, Gelug - totally Rimey (also Zen, Thai, Theravadan, yoga travelers, and the curious - just about everyone!). Everyone became great friends and learned from each other. We're there every Friday night - see you there.

Motivation: To make the Rubin Museum Lounge on Friday night the Buddhist and like-minded hang-out spot in New York. If you like Buddhas or to meditate - then you'll love the Rubin!

Who: ALL ARE INVITED. Feel free to spread the word. The more, the merrier.

Time: 6:30-?pm
Date: Every Friday - like clockwork
Place: Rubin Museum Lounge, 17th Street and 7th Avenue
How to find us: Look for a table with the small sign "Dharma Drink" + Lounge staff will know where we are.

FYI - Vesak Celebration - Buddhist Council of NY @ Union Theological Seminary

Union Theological Seminary

This is an FYI only and not an event.

Vesak is an important day for Buddhists worldwide. Per UN: "'Vesak', the Day of the Full Moon in the month of May, is the most sacred day to millions of Buddhists around the world. It was on the Day of Vesak two and a half millennia ago, in the year 623 B.C., that the Buddha was born. It was also on the Day of Vesak that the Buddha attained enlightenment, and it was on the Day of Vesak that the Buddha in his eightieth year passed away."

Buddhist Council of NY and The Thích Nhất Hạnh Program for Engaged Buddhism will be celebrating at Union Theological Seminary (By Columbia University) and you are welcome to celebrate with them in person. Below are details.
