TMC Memorial Wall
TMC was blessed by the recent visit of H.E. Chenga Rinpoche who performed a consecration of the Amitabha buddha statue which is central to our beautiful Memorial Wall. The Memorial Wall is a wonderful a way to keep our loved ones alive in our hearts and minds after they pass on. Located near our Stupa, it includes 108 niches, each of which is covered by a copper plaque. Please go to the Participate section for details on making use of the Memorial Wall.

New Teaching Series
Beginning Tue, Aug 16th
It is hard to exaggerate the importance of the Ornament of the Mahayana Sutra in the Tibetan tradition. The Ornament provides a comprehensive description of the bodhisattva’s view, meditation, and enlightened activities. Bodhisattvas are beings who, out of vast love for all sentient beings, have dedicated themselves to the task of becoming fully awakened buddhas, capable of helping all beings in innumerable and vast ways to become enlightened themselves. To fully awaken requires much mind training on enlightened qualities and the Ornament of the Mahayana text explains what these qualities are and how to develop them. Please join us for this series of teachings by Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin Rinpoche.
