GENERAL INFORMATION

PLEASE USE YOUR REAL NAME for the Zoom room.
You may log in shortly before the scheduled start and wait. Please don’t be late. The session begins on time.

Please mute yourselves (the moderator will control microphones for all). Although we enjoy reciting aloud together as an aspect of the practice, this sound interferes with the Zoom transmission . So we need to limit the audio to only Rinpoche’s speaking, while we recite by ourselves.

When Rinpoche arrives, he’d like to see everyone, so please keep your video on. Then, if you wish, you may close it until the dedication at the end.

At the end of the meditation, we will again turn on our videos for Rinpoche to see everyone again and we will unmute for recitation of the Dedication and Long Life prayers.

YOUR GENEROSITY COUNTS : EWAM CHODEN exists from the support of your donation. SEE BELOW.
