Activities & Events

Wishing everyone a happy holiday

and a peaceful, prosperous and healthy New Year!

Friday, December 31:  7:00-8:30 PM  Vajrasattva Practice. The great Purification practice of Vajrayana Buddhism. At the end of the old year, we confess our negative thoughts, words, and deeds and promise to never repeat them – thus, we begin the New Year with a pure body and mind.
