Please join us on Sunday, October 2, for the resumption of our monthly Nyinthün program, led by our resident Canadian spiritual friend, Lama Rabten Tshering. This practice is both in-person at Maitrivana and online via Zoom.
We are also happy to share some good news!
Firstly, we are delighted to offer in-person programs again at our Nalandabodhi Vancouver dharma centre, Maitrivana (Skt. Garden of Loving Kindness). So, you may choose to join this program in-person, or online via Zoom, or both!
Secondly, many Nalandabodhi Vancouverites may recall that Lama Rabten, for more than a decade, used to host a regular Thursday night Chenrezig and Mahakala practice; and just like most things, this was interrupted by the covid pandemic. At this present time and for the foreseeable future, it is unlikely Thursday night Chenrezig and Mahakala practice will resume.
But here is the good news! After considering the circumstances, and not wanting to lose our deep and long-standing connection to Avalokiteśvara (Chenrezig) practice: Lama Rabten has decided to dedicate our monthly Nyinthün program to the practice of Chenrezig, beginning in October.
Please join us for our first monthly recurring Chenrezig Nyinthün, beginning Sunday, Oct., 2.
