Sunday November 18th, 2:30 – 4:30 – Khen Rinpoche will teach on and bestow the Refuge vows. To take refuge is to formally enter and commit to the Buddhist path. We take refuge in the Buddha as the one who achieved awakening, the dharma as the teachings that lead to wisdom, and the sangha as the Buddhist community.
Meet in the Ewam Shrine Room at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas at 2:30 pm. Please come 10-15 minutes early to have some tea and take your seat. Event is free and open to all. A teacher offering is also customary at the conclusion of the vows; the amount does not matter, go with your own situation and heart.
Pre-registration is not required. If you need any overnight accommodations please write firstname.lastname@example.org for availability and pricing.
Sunday November 18th, 5:00 – 7:00
A reading transmission bestows a text in an unbroken lineage from when the teaching was first given until the present time. It is considered critical to the understanding of that text. Join us as Khen Rinpoche will give the reading transmission of the Uttaratantra, a key text for understanding Buddha Nature which is inherent in all beings. This event is free and open to all, a teacher offering is customary at the conclusion and may be any amount you wish. Meet at the garden shrine room – please come 15 – 20 minutes early have some tea and take your seat.
