Lama Norgyal will be teaching on and leading the sangha in the chanting of Calling the Lama from Afar. Written by the great master Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, this text is a powerful supplication to invoke the blessings of the lama and the great masters of all four Tibetan Buddhist lineages.  A combination of profound meditation instruction and plain-spoken reminders about the way we can delude ourselves on the path, this melodiously sung devotional prayer is an inspiration for practitioners of all levels.



10:00 am | Teaching on Calling the Lama from Afar
11:00 am | Chanting of Calling the Lama from Afar
