October 19th – 25th:
800th Commemoration of Lord Jigten Sumgon’s Maha Parinirvana (Live Streaming)
The 800th Commemoration of Lord Jigten Sumgon’s Maha Parinirvana will start October 19th, 2017. The main teachings and programs will be live streamed from 19th – 25th October 2017 between 09:00 – 17:30 Indian Standard Time and can be viewed online:
Weekly Practice Schedule:
Sunday Mornings: We are currently practicing Ngondro every Sunday morning. If you have longed to complete the preliminary practices but have needed support from a group, or if you are new to Buddhism and want to deepen your understanding and commitment, then Sunday morning practice is for you.
Lord Jigten Sumgon, the father of our lineage, said: “ The Ngondro is even more important than the higher practices. One must truly understand and practice the simple yet profound foundational teachings before one begins the higher teachings.”
