When We Re-open Down the Road
Pema Karpo Meditation Center is inspired and guided by the teachings of Nyingma Tibetan Buddhism. The center welcomes local and regional practitioners who come for meditation, dharma teachings, classes and celebrations.
We do not have a prerequisite for new people prior to attending. You do not need to be, or become, Buddhist to attend. Sessions are free and everyone is welcome.
Cushions, chairs and chant books are available at the center or you may bring your own meditation cushion.
Leave your shoes on the shoe racks and come into the meditation room. We have a bowl of maroon slap bracelets on the shoe rack that are used to signify a wish to practice without talking (noble silence) during your time at Pema Karpo. Please put it back in the bowl as you leave.
Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche often says that a dharma center is a place for everyone to come, relax and be present together.
It is a place to be happy.
