Dear Sangha and Dharma friends,
Tibetan New Year begins on March 3 this year, ushering in the year of the Water Tiger.
This past year we were able to resume a somewhat normal schedule of pujas and meditation. Since the Omicron surge we have once again been practicing calm abiding outside on Sunday mornings along with our discussion group centered on seven point mind training. On Thursdays we keep up the practices of Chagdrupa and Chenrezik in the shrine room following Covid protocols for indoor practice. We have also been practicing White Tara, the Four Deities and Medicine Buddha on a bimonthly basis and hope to continue with our semiannual Mahamudra retreat. I know that we are all grateful to be able to practice together again and it is my hope that we can continue to do so in the coming year. You can find our current schedule on our website.
