Dzambhala and the Protection of Bodhicitta

One-Day Retreat  with Lama Konchok Sonam

Sunday, December 28, 2014,  10am - 5pm

Empowerment & Teachings for Wealth, Prosperity,  and Freedom Join us for a special one-day retreat on the tantric meditational deity Dzambhala- the embodiment of the generosity of all the Buddhas and bodhisattvas of the past, present, and future. Holding a jewel-spitting mongoose, Dzambhala grants longevity and prosperity; poverty is relieved on a material as well as psychological level; dharma practioners are helped to have stable lives, free from worry.

Katsel Mural Restoration Project

Katsel Monastery in Tibet is an ancient treasure built in the 7th century. Dynamite blast mining of rock used for commercial construction has damaged the walls and foundation of this architectural treasure.

Katsel's enlightened master, Nyedak Rinpoche, is raising the funds to repair the damaged sacred murals and restore this architectural treasure to it's previous state.  Now Lama Sonam has vowed to help his master recreate the Amitabha Buddha Pure Land mural of the inner temple.

This is a very special image which creates a connection for achieving one's own enlightenment quickly.  This exquisitely detailed depiction of the Western Pure Land will be painted on the temple wall using the enduring methods of the master artisans of the region.

Your contribution has the potential to bring enormous benefit. Donate to  the Katsel Monastery Sacred Mural Renovation Project today.  Join Lama Sonam in preserving this precious part of Tibetan history and help keep the practice of Tibetan Buddhism flourishing in it's homeland.

The Drikung Meditation Center, Tibetan Buddhism in the Boston Area

The Drikung Meditation Center is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation center located in Arlington, Massachusetts (in the metro Boston area) that is dedicated to the practice and study of the Buddha’s teachings as preserved in the Drikung Kagyu lineage. We are a Vajrayana Buddhist center that is a branch of Tibet’s famous Katsel monastery, and are a Tibetan Buddhist pilgrimage site featuring an “emanation replica” of the famous Jowo Rinpoche statue in Lhasa, Tibet. U.S. Drikung Jowo Rinpoche is the main feature of this pilgrimage site. For more information on the U.S. Jowo Rinpoche and pilgrimage site, visit Jokhang.org.

We host a variety of great spiritual masters throughout the year and make their teachings available to the greater Boston community. We welcome anyone and everyone to come and join us for the Dharma. We are here to serve the community and to bring the happiness and joy of the Buddhist teachings to everyone who is interested.

The Four Immeasurable Wishes of Buddhism
Love: May all mother sentient beings, boundless as the sky, have happiness and the causes of happiness.
Compassion: May they be liberated from suffering and the causes of suffering. Bliss: May they never be separated from the happiness which is free from sorrow. Equanimity: May they rest in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion.
