INTRODUCTION TO BUDDHISM ONLINE:

TEACHINGS ON THE VIMALAKIRTI SUTRA

with Lama Karma

Wednesdays @ 6:30-8pm
Starts January 17

The Vimalakīrti Nirdeśa Sūtra is one of the most famous and influential Mahāyāna Sūtras, known for its revolutionary messages of respect for lay practitioners and for the equal role of women in the Dharma.
It is a quintessential portrait of the doctrine of nonduality, and reveals this profound view through many episodes of mind-bending humor and daring.
This section of Introduction to Buddhism is open to anyone, regardless of their level of practice or background, and will provide a thorough grounding in groundlessness and the ability to think inconceivably.

Classes will meet at the Lotus Light Center to participate in the online streaming, or you can join in from home.

Everyone’s welcome!

Thursdays

6:30pm–7:30pm

    • Chenrezig practice (open to all)

  1. Tashi Dalek!

    I’m was a member a long long time ago before moving away. I have returned and desperately need a sangha. When is the next available meeting?

    • Hi Claire
      We are in the process of moving to our new space at 501 Arthur St. You could come and join us Thursday night at 6:30 for a short Chenrezik practice and discussion or join us Saturday at 9:00 am and help us load up and move!

      Thanks

      Tom
