Beginners Welcome

We offer group practice and study weekly on Sundays from 10:00-11:30 AM.  Each session focuses on both meditation practice (Concise Red Tara and Chenrezig Sur) and book study/discussion.  Currently we are studying Paltrul Rinpoche's extensive dissertation of the Ngondro or Foundational Practices (The Words of My Perfect Teacher).  Each month we also perform a more elaborate tsog meditation practice to celebrate specific days associated with the enlightened activity of Guru Rinpoche and Red Tara.

We provide practice texts and meditation cushions for use during practice. We have chairs for those who need alternate seating from meditation cushions.  Our shrine room comfortably accommodates you and those whom you would like to invite to practice.  We look forward to helping you understand more of the aspects of weekly group meditation practice and study.  No prior experience is necessary.  All are welcome.

From Hwy 110 going north, take the Figueroa exit and merge with Figueroa going north. From Hwy 110 going south, take the 26th St exit and turn right on 26th and then right on Figueroa. From Hwy 5 going north, take the 110N off ramp to the Figueroa exit and turn left on 26th and then right on Figueroa.

Once going north on Figueroa, within a few red lights, turn left of Cypress. After a few miles, look for Alice St, and just past that is Granada St - turn right. At end of wide Granada, look slightly to left and start up a steep hill - this is Tacoma. Wind around uphill till it starts to level out and the road 'Y's - bear sharply to the left and keep going up hill. As you bear right up the hill you'll see T'hondup Ling on the right side with many prayer flags surrounding the porch.
