Gomde Cooperstown Online Meditation Meetings

Tuesdays 6 – 7pm, Introduction to Meditation 

This meditation meeting is open to all, beginner and advanced alike, with meditation instruction available on request.  It is an opportunity for all to come together as a virtual group to support each other in meditation and discussing Pema Chodron’s new book,  Welcoming the Unwelcome  We are currently about halfway through, but the discussion tends to be broad, and it is feasible to join in if you like.

Thursdays 6 – 7:30 pm and Fridays 11am – 12:30pm, Progressive Stages of Meditation on Emptiness 

Although as Buddhists we might want to experience emptiness, for many of us the topic becomes dauntingly intellectual.  In this book, the contemporary teacher Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche presents ways to meditate experientially on the ways the different Buddhist schools present emptiness, which many people find helpful.  We had just concluded a month-long consideration of the Cittamatra view before our hiatus, and are about to move on to Madhyamaka.

Sundays 11am – 12:30pm, The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva 

We will begin study of Ngulchu Thogme’s well-loved text this coming Sunday, using Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s commentary The Heart of Compassion as a general text, but any translation will be fine if people don’t want to buy a second copy.
