We are pleased to announce that the summer retreat will be in-person this year!*

Meditation has become very popular as a healthful way of helping our minds. Leaning meditation without deeper teachings and learning how to generate compassion misses the aspects of practice that can help us the most.

Advice from Khen Rinpoche Tsewang Gyatso

Oh my dear brothers and sisters of the world. Now it is time to work together to do what we can do to fight this coronavirus as it is affecting people globally. Looking into world history, this pandemic is not the first. There was the plague in 1720, a cholera pandemic in 1820, the flu pandemic in 1920, and SARS in 2003. With this past experience, we need to be more aware and try to correct ourselves now, because this is a result of the collective negative deeds of humankind. We have to remind ourselves what we have done in the past to each other, including the killing and torturing of animals, thereby emotionally creating problems in the world. This pandemic is the result of our negative actions.
