September 2019

  • September 1  Chenrezig:   On the first Sunday of each month, instead of studying we chant the Chenrezik sadhana, a prayer of compassion.  All are welcome and no special knowledge is required.  


  • September 8:  Compassion Meditation Video by Lama Kathy Wesley:  In Tibetan Buddhism there is a powerful  form of meditation called TONGLEN that helps us to develop  compassion—for loved ones, acquaintances, strangers, and rogues, as well  as ourselves. This Sunday Michael  Sisson will present a short video introduction by Lama Kathy Wesley,  head teacher at Columbus KTC, and then lead us through the practice of tonglen.


  • September 15:  Video Teaching


  • September 22:    Introduction to Buddhism Series Class 1:  The  Buddha taught that there are three things we can rely on and take refuge  in for our practice to  be most beneficial. They are the Buddha, the Dharma (his teachings),  and the Sangha (the community of fellow practitioners). In this first of  our monthly series on the basics of Buddhism, Kathryn Cooper will help  us understand the significance of these Three  Jewels.   (Note:  The Introduction to Buddhism Series is an 8 part series.  We will be offering one teaching per month from this series.  Scroll down for the series schedule)
