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).
Chanting of the Monlam Choga, a practice of offering and aspiration prayers compiled by Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche. This is followed by the short liturgy of Shitro (Peaceful and Wrathful Deities), a profound practice from the cycle of teachings and meditations of the Tibetan Book of the Dead. We dedicate this practice to the deceased in order to purify negativities, avert obstacles in the bardo, and establish a connection with the deities that will ripen in future lives.
If you would like to participate, please use our online event registration form.
