EXPLORING TIBETAN BUDDHISM (Thursdays starting June 10, 2021) We are excited to announce that we are starting our Buddhism from the Ground Up series again! Buddhism from the Ground Up is a long-term program designed for those who want to go deeper into Buddhist studies and practice.

It begins with the course Exploring Tibetan Buddhism and ends with completing the preliminary practices.

Year one of this three-year program is called EXPLORING TIBETAN BUDDHISM where we will study the text Words of My Perfect Teacher by Patrul Rinpoche.

The entire program consists of three parts:

Part I: Exploring Tibetan Buddhism – Thursdays June 10, 2021 – June 2022

Part II: Guru Rinpoche Sadhana: June 2022-June 2023

Part III: Ngondro Practice: Begins June 2023

Words of My Perfect Teacher covers a wide range of subjects including karma, taking refuge, mandala, and how to recognize an authentic spiritual teacher. This part of the program is open to those curious about Buddhism, those who want to deepen their studies, as well as those who want to follow the entire Buddhism from the Ground Up program.
