THE JOKHANG MEDITATION HALL at MAITRIPA COLLEGE

The Jokhang Meditation Hall Program at Maitripa offers traditional Dharma teachings, pujas, prayers, and hosts visiting lamas. The Jokhang was given its name by Maitripa College's President  and primary teacher, Yangsi Rinpoche, after the famed Jokhang temple in Lhasa, Tibet.

The Jokhang Program strives to operate in a spirit of openness and community, and you are welcome to join us at any time for any activity held in the Jokhang, regardless of your religious affiliation. The Jokhang is a sacred space, and we ask you to respect it. Please leave your shoes in the space provided outside the temple & dress appropriately.

See the event calendar as well as links to current monthly calendars on the main page for current schedule of Jokhang Program events. In the spirit of generosity, all Jokhang programs are offered to the public free of charge, although you are invited to offer a donation as an expression of your support.


DISCOVERING BUDDHISM PROGRAM: An FPMT Introductory Program

The aim of the Discovering Buddhism Program, which is offered in the Jokhang, is to give participants a solid footing in the practice of Mahayana Buddhism. Participants will receive an experiential taste of the Buddha's teachings, some retreat experience, and skills they can use to make their lives most meaningful. The Discovering Buddhism modules are offered free of charge by Maitripa several times a year, usually during the Maitripa College academic semester and summer breaks. However there are administrative costs to running this program; therefore your donations are needed and welcomed.
