Sunday 2 May to Saturday 8 May

Here Sangharakshita orientates us to Vajrasattva, the primordial Buddha of Innate Purity. He introduces the Vajrasattva practice as part of the four indispensable preparatory practices (mula-yogas) of the Vajrayana devotee.
Join us for an evening of meditation, music, poetry, personal stories, and generosity. Lyla June and Minal Hajratwala will perform. Christine Thuring (from the Vancouver sangha), and Tim Skufca&Marta Meengs (from the Montana sangha) will share their experiences with engaged Buddhism on behalf of the earth. Join the Green Sangha to fundraise, protect, and celebrate the rainforest—the lungs of the earth!
Dates: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm Pacific Daylight Time
