Upcoming Open House Dates:
In many Buddhist lands, the full moon is a time to gather for prayer and meditation. We continue this tradition at the Nyingma Institute through holding a chanting ceremony on full moon nights. Join Nyingma students and friends in chanting the Vajra Guru Mantra interspersed with periods of meditation. The chant is held in one of our classrooms and is led by a faculty member, from 8–9:30 PM.
No registration is required. The chant starts promptly at 8 PM, so please arrive a few minutes earlier.
