The Maitreya Center of Palpung Thubten Choling reopened as of July 1, in accordance with New York State guidelines. However, because of heightened covid rates in the area, we will no longer be allowing people to come in person to the monastery classes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. The classes will continue on Zoom as usual, they just will not be hybrid (combining both online and in person).
A traditional Tong Chö of 1,000 butter lamps, 1,000 bowls of saffron water and 300 bowls filled with rice, incense and flowers is offered weekly, accompanied by chanting of the Chenrezig practice.
