At the request of Richmond-based Palpung Shenpen Tharchin sangha, Lama Zangmo of Palpung Thubten Choling will lead an in-person teaching and practice weekend May 6 & 7 on Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of compassion. Sessions will also be live-streamed via Zoom and recorded.
From Lama Zangmo: “We will discuss and practice the Chenrezig sadhana and compassion itself in terms of view, meditation, and application. The view is our perspective and approach to the practice. Meditation includes deity meditation as a technique and how it relates to other dharma practices such as calm abiding and insight. Application relates the view and meditation to our daily lives.”
Practice sessions will include teaching, chanting (in Tibetan and English), mantra recitation and Q&A as needed. For those attending in person, individual meetings with Lama Zangmo will be available upon request and as time allows.
May 6 & 7 (Saturday & Sunday): 10:00 am – 12:00 pm & 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Attend in person in Richmond or online via Zoom
Please join us in person at the Coalition Theatre
