After meditation, join us for coffee, tea, and snacks.

Basic Buddhism classes
Each Sunday at 11:30 we offer a basic lesson about Buddhism, with a chance for questions.

Study & Discussion
Also at 11:30, we study Buddhism together by reading and discussing or listening to a speaker. (On the first Sunday of each month, instead of study we chant the Chenrezik sadhana, a prayer of compassion.)

Tibetan Buddhist meditation, study, and discussion. We read books together, or listen to recorded talks, frequently stopping to discuss. As often as we can, we have talks by visiting teachers (lamas, or senior students from Columbus KTC).

Newcomers are always welcome, and we offer meditation instruction at no charge. Beginning in 2007, we will offer introductory classes in the basics of Tibetan Buddhism.
