Please join us at Gar Drolma for a new study group;

Buddhist and Western Concepts Advanced Study Group.
The group will meet on the 3rd Friday of each month from 7:00 – 9:00pm


The discussions will include reflecting on Buddhist and Western philosophical thinking about the mind,
reviewing neurophysiological evidence concerning the body and mind, and discussing recent theories and ideas
from physics. We will provide web links each month that provide relevant background information on the topics
to be discussed to make it easier for anyone to participate in the discussion. The principal focus of the group is
to attempt to reconcile Buddhist ideas and concepts about the body, mind, and universe with Western knowledge.

Chakrasamvara & rare instructions on the Stages of Meditation.

Now that our wonderful spring retreat with Garchen Rinpoche has come to an end, we are extremely happy to be
able to offer you the ability to experience these precious teachings through audio downloads. For those of you who
could not attend, it is an opportunity to share in Garchen Rinpoche’s teachings about the Drikung yidam,
Chakrasamvara, and his profound, rare instructions on the Stages of Meditation. For those of you who did
attend, this will be an opportunity to relive the experience many times.

These audio downloads are being made available as part of our new Vajra Speech program at Gar Drolma.
It is our wish to preserve and share the precious teachings of Garchen Rinpoche that we’ve had the privilege
to receive at the center with students around the world. In return, a sliding scale donation is requested
from $50 to $80 for both weekend’s teachings. (click here to order) to help us sustain the activities of
the center for the benefit of beings everywhere.

We are always grateful for your support and we wish to thank those who attended the retreat—often by
traveling great distances or overcoming other difficulties. In addition, we’d like to give a special thanks to
those of you who joined us by Ustream. It is wonderful to know that Garchen Rinpoche’s teachings were
able to reach 4000 students from 23 countries. You give us reason to be even more diligent in our dharma activities.
