Study Group on Awakening the Sleeping Buddha
12/07/2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until 12/28/2022
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).

Led by Lamas Depa and Lhadrun, we will be exploring in depth Awakening the Sleeping Buddha written by the Twelfth Tai Situpa, Pema Donyo Nyinche. In this book, HE Tai Situ Rinpoche lucidly presents and explains very basic and important principles such as Buddha Nature, Bodhichitta, Reincarnation, Karma and Emptiness. In this class, which includes study, discussion and meditation, we will investigate these principles deeply, and also draw from the works of other Buddhist masters for further elucidation.
Guru Vajradhara Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa, The Twelth Tai Situpa, is a great meditation master, scholar, artist, and is the abbot of Sherab Ling Monastery in northern India, as well as the head of our own monastery, Palpung Thupten Choling.
We are very much looking forward to this new class and students of all levels are welcome to join any Tuesday. There are no prerequisites and no attendance requirement.
