Watch Lama Lodo's Message to youth:

Chenrezig Practice
Sundays 10:00- 11:00am 
in the Shrine Room
Beginners and seasoned practitioners are all welcome.  The Chenrezig sadhana is easy to practice, but profound, and has the potential to lead us to Buddhahood.

"May you, Chenrezig, hold all beings fast in your enlightened compassion until all sentient beings have established themselves in the state of Buddhahood."

Green Tara Practice

Tuesday and Friday mornings
6:00-7:35 a.m.

Green Tara is perceived as

giving powerful help to remove obstacles. These obstacles may be external or within our own mind - anything that causes us suffering or prevents us from being happy. People pray to Tara for help with worldly problems as well as for help with progress along the spiritual path. Images portray her as quick and fearless in her activity, for example, her outstretched right leg shows her readiness to spring into action whenever she is needed and she is often described as youthful, playful and dynamic. Green Tara is particularly associated with the quality of fearlessness and her special role lies in helping beings to overcome all kinds of fear and the suffering associated with fear.
