Alternative New Years Eve

dOORS AT 10:30

Just hours before midnight, Gen Kelsang Tenzin will give a talk on how we can go deeper into our hearts in 2022 and establish a true source of happiness within. He will give an introduction to the practice of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, which is a beautiful arrangement of prayers and mantras; we will then engage in the practice itself. Together we will dedicate our meditation to health, happiness and harmony throughout the world, and to our collective discovery of the potential that lies within in 2022! Everyone welcome.

Our Founder and Spiritual Teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso often says, "everyone welcome!" Yes, everyone is welcome to join the Center, its classes, events and practices regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender and so on.
