Group Practice

Meditation and Practice Dharma Group

H.E. Garchen Rinpoche has kindly chosen several practices for us to do as a group (Lama Chopa/Guru Yoga, White Tara, Smoke Offering, Dzambhala, 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas). We have those texts available for your use. Rinpoche emphasized the importance of meeting for a regular group practice, and he also mentioned how important it is to maintain a warm and harmonious group atmosphere.

If you want to remove stress from your live and if you want to know what absolute truth and peace are like, you should come and try out our courses. This modern day life is full of things that are simply corrupting our aura and our being. To remove this thing, that is blocking us, from our lives, we need to practice meditation and other techniques that are proven to give results. Our understanding of life is yet to be discovered. Our purpose is also yet to be discovered. To have absolute truth and peace, to have a life free from suffering and constant problems, this is the way you should try out. We are here for you.
