Weeklong Retreat with Ven Tenzin Priyadarshi

Planning has begun for a weeklong retreat with Ven Priyadarshi in Southern California. The location will probably be in Santa Barbara or Los Angeles area, or between. Time may be sometime in the beginning of 2015.

Dharma Study Circle:  The Study Circle is an opportunity to progress in one's spiritual growth through becoming familiar with Buddhist texts, by having constructive discussions of the texts, and by interacting in the fellowship of sangha community with other aspirants. Periodically there will be Q&A sessions with Ven Priyadarshi on the text under discussion.

Currently we are discussing Atisha's "Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment." We meet in 2 locations in Southern California, in Huntington Beach, and in Santa Barbara. Contact us if interested in joining a group.
