SUNDAY MEDITATION – PUBLIC WELCOME!
Looking for a Buddhist center? Come Sunday to our weekly public meditation. Starting promptly at 10 a.m., the session lasts about 1-1/2 hours. It’s a guided meditation based on the traditional practice of Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of compassion.
Lama Kunga Rinpoche is conducting the annual Memorial Prayer service at Ewam Choden. This is a gathering to offer prayers for those sentient beings who have passed on. The event is open to everyone.
You may bring a photo of a special person or animal you wish to include. The gathering begins at 7 p.m. and lasts for about one and a half to two hours.
