Our Dharma Study Group

 

In this weekly session, we participate in group study and discussion of a Dharma text from our lineage. We pick texts that are of interest to both new and long-term students, and we generally alternate between introductory material and more advanced topics. Our objective is to stimulate discussion about the Dharma and how it applies to our everyday lives. The study group is a great place for beginners to start as there are many opportunities to ask questions of more experienced practitioners. We begin each session with a period of sitting meditation. Please feel free to attend any one or more classes. New participants are welcome at any time.

 Current Study Session

Starting January 3rd we will be starting an extended study of the Six Paramitas, or the Six Perfections, foundations of the Mahayana Path. We will focus on selections of Thrangu Rinpoche’s commentary on Gampopa’s “Jewel Ornament of Liberation”, as well as other texts. We hope to practice applying the Paramitas to everyday life. Readings will be provided electronically. Our first classes will be on the paramita of Generosity. Readings, videos, and guided meditations will be facilitated by senior members of our study group.  All are welcome; please join us!
