Current Study Session:

Every Wednesday evening at 7:00pm  we gather to study teachings and meditations of interest to Buddhist practictioners. New participants are welcome at any time.

On Wed., March 13 we will begin to study the late Traleg Rinpoche's wonderful The Essence of Buddhism. This guide to the Buddhist path from the Tibetan point of view is accessible and complete. Traleg Kyabgon breaks the teachings down into the three traditional “vehicles,” while emphasizing that the point of all Dharma is nothing other than insight into the mind and heart. Along the way he provides vivid definitions of fundamental Buddhist concepts such as compassion, emptiness, and Buddha-nature.

Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche (1955-2012) is known for his profound knowledge, clear explanations, and accessibility to western students. Copies of the book are available for purchase for $15 at the center.  All are welcome!
