Weekly Schedule

11:15 a.m. Sunday Service: The 3 Yanas Sunday Service will feature a variety of meditation practices interspersed with short Dharma talks and instruction by Lama Nancy Burks, as well as group discussion.

The 3 Yanas, or 3 vehicles, are three approaches to the Buddhist path, Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana. Part of the name of our center, Thegsum, and of our parent monastery, Triyana, refer to the 3 Yanas in Tibetan and Sanskrit respectively.

This program will be appropriate for all levels of student, and each week will be different.
