Our programs are organized into the following streams
Special Sessions with Great Masters
During these sessions (typically once in three months), we have great masters (Rinpoches) of Nyingma Buddhism visiting our center. During these occasions, empowerments (initiations) for various Vajrayana meditation practices are conferred. In addition, there are oral transmissions of scriptures in the traditional way to pass blessings in an unbroken lineage all the way from Shakyamuni Buddha. These masters also give practical instructions and detailed teachings during their visits. Participants also get an opportunity to individually meet these masters and take personal advice and practice instructions after these sessions.
Regular Sessions of Dharma Teaching and Meditation
These sessions (typically on every Sunday 10:00am) are intended to introduce Buddhist philosophy and practice, as well as a platform for regular practice and interactive learning. There are sessions at basic and advanced levels. This includes practical dharma for daily life as well as instructions for advancing in the spiritual path. These sessions start with a meditation session. Most often, the teaching sessions are also interspersed with meditations, contemplations and discussions.
We also have advanced study programs on various philosophical topics of Buddhism.
