Upcoming Drop-in Classes
Join us for an evening of connecting with our sangha community. Bring a cup of tea and meet old and new friends to refresh & relax after a busy week. In this month's event, we will discuss how to integrate your spiritual practice with our close relationships. Let’s connect and share. Everybody welcome!
In this retreat, we will focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit and receiving blessings. Making mandala offerings is the gateway to accumulating the collection of merit and attaining an enlightened pure land, and Guru yoga is the gateway to receiving powerful blessings of all the Buddhas of the ten directions through our Spiritual Guide.
Three long-term senior practitioners share the ups and downs we can all face while traveling a spiritual path and how to overcome our downtimes. They demonstrate the benefits of hanging in there, creating fresh starts, and the power of joyful reliance.
KMCSF was the first Kadampa Center established in the USA since 1991. In our peaceful city sanctuary, Buddha's teachings are presented in an accessible manner that can easily be integrated into busy modern life. Our teachings are based on the books of the modern day meditation master and Buddhist teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. We now offer online streaming.
