Chökhor Düchen, the ‘Festival of Turning the Wheel of Dharma’


August 4, 2019

Chökhor Düchen, the ‘Festival of Turning the Wheel of Dharma’. It occurs on the fourth day of the sixth Tibetan lunar month. For seven weeks after his enlightenment, Buddha did not teach. Finally, encouraged by Indra and Brahma, he turned the Wheel of Dharma for the first time, at Sarnath, by teaching the ‘Four Noble Truths’.

The Rime Center will be hosting a special puja to commemorate the Festival of Turning the Wheel of Dharma and will be open after the Sunday Service for you to come in and meditate at your own pace and time limit. The Special Puja will be occur during the Sunday Service.

Rainbow Body LGBTQIA+ Meditation Group

Beginning Tuesday August 6th, the Rime Center will be hosting a monthly meditation group and LGBTAIQ+ safe space. The meditation group will be meeting the first Tuesday of the month from 7:30 – 9:00 pm in our main shrine room. There will be meditation as well as mindful dialogue.

In order to provide “safe spaces” for certain marginalized communities, the Rime Buddhist Center hosted monthly practice group is reserved for members of the LGBTQIA+ communities and their allies. This program is intended to create a space where members of these communities can feel safe, being less likely to face dynamics of oppression that are part of their daily lives, in our culture where progress is still needed to move towards a society free of racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. The Rime Buddhist Center believes that this space is conducive to practitioners, especially newer practitioners, to be able to focus their full efforts on learning, and integrating into their lives, the practices of mindfulness meditation, compassion, and other teachings offered at the Center.

To Live A Meaningful Life Decide What You Are For And Go For The Brass Ring

Dharma discussion with Lama Matthew Palden Gocha and Circe Nova on June 23rd, 2019.

Music by Barefoot Bran Music.

The exact quote from the book Cave in the Snow that Lama Matt referenced is “To me the Dakini principle stands for the intuitive force. Women get it in a flash-they’re not interested in intellectual discussion which they normally find dry and cold with minimal appeal. To women that’s the long way of going about it. They go through the back door! This reveals itself as women being more practical in their approach, less abstract and idealistic than men. They want to know, ‘What can we do?’ They’re not entranced by theories and ideas-they want to be able to crunch it between their teeth.” – Tenzin Palmo.
