with Khenpo Thupten Gongphel
(Zoom and in person)

Sunday, December 3
10 AM Central Time (Minnesota)

11 AM Eastern / 9 AM Mountain / 8 AM Pacific

Arya  Avalokiteshvara (known as Chenrezig in Tibetan and Kuan Yin in Chinese) embodies the compassion of all the buddhas. Through meditation on Avalokiteshvara, we quickly develop compassion; when joined with Mahamudra, we are also meditating on the nature of the mind.
