Online Sang Offering Puja: April 6-9, 2020 @ 9:00 am to 10:30 am

 
Dear Ewam Sangha:
The Tibetan Government in Exile’s Department of Religion and Culture has announced that according to the Nechung Oracle, we should make smoke offerings (sang) and in particular he has again and again stated that we should practice Nolsang, The Divine Blue Water smoke offering in order to benefit the situation with the coronavirus. Seeing the importance of this, Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, our own source of refuge in this and future lives, has planned for us to host smoke offerings online from the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas for three days, April 6th, 7th, & 8th from 9:00-10:30 am mountain time. We will provide texts both in Tibetan and English to recite together. I request anyone who may be interested to join us online. There will be no charge for participation.

Summer Buddhist  Studies Program July 1-31

Covid-19 announcement – First year cancelled.

For those of you who are in the 5th-year of the Shedra, we will be meeting online for a tsok feast and for a few days of online teachings to maintain the auspicious continuity of our group as we are forced to postpone until next year.

Our shedra program is a five year program that meets every year in July and may be attended for a year, several years or the entire certificate program of five years which covers all the teachings of Buddhism from the foundational vehicles to the highest teachings of Ati Yoga or Dzogchen. We will use the seminal text by Jigme Lingpa, Treasury of Precious Qualities, written in the 18th century as a key to all the Buddhist teachings of scripture and realization. Our shedra is unique in that we will also offer some of the methods of practice and meditation that accompany the stages of the path.

Our purpose is to fully train students in all aspects of Buddhist philosophy, theory and practice.

Cost for the entire program includes all the teachings, 3 meals a day and accommodations. We have two fees depending on your ability to pay. Camping $950 and $1,100 (includes full use of the sangha house) – Shared rooms $1,300 and $1,500. Commuter non-residential rate for year one $650 and $750 includes all teachings and lunch.  Students may pay a $200 deposit to hold their spot with remainder due by June 15th. Registration is closed June 1 and the year one program is limited to 35 people. Please register early to reserve your spot.
