Green Tara Empowerment: Meeting the Essence of the Buddhas' Protection (beginning with Refuge Ceremony)
We are pleased to announce that in early June our beloved teacher, Khenpo Lodro Donyo Rinpoche, will return to Portland to offer teachings and to preside over the gate opening ceremonies celebrating the completion of KCC's Three Year Retreat at our retreat center Ser Cho Osel Ling. We are very grateful that Rinpoche will be taking time from his many responsibilities and come half way around the world to officiate and offer teachings.
Rinpoche's teachings in Portland will follow the theme of how the Dharma provides us the means to fruitfully work with adversity in our ordinary lives. Listening to Rinpoche’s teachings will help us see how difficult circumstances are not only workable, they are precisely the means for attaining full release from the causes of suffering. His presence at the gate opening ceremonies will help us celebrate honoring our commitment to Bokar Rinpoche to build our retreat center and complete the Three Year Retreat.
