It is not enough to become passionate. You must act. There are two aspects to action. One is to overcome the distortions and afflictions of your own mind, that is, in terms of calming and eventually dispelling anger. This is action out of compassion. The other is more social, more public. When something needs to be done in the world to rectify the wrongs, if one is really concerned with benefiting others, one needs to be engaged, involved. -His Holiness the Dalai Lama

A MESSAGE FROM YANGSI RINPOCHE

Dear Maitripa College Students, Supporters & Friends,

Maitripa College has been growing our student body and expanding our degree programs and continuing education opportunities. In addition to that, Maitripa will be launching its annual online auction along with our annual winter benefit this year, and offering many public programs and hosting special guests.

In order to make all of these events a success, and to continue to serve our students and the world by providing Buddhist education through scholarship, meditation, and community service, as well as to continue movement toward our long-term goal of attaining regional accreditation and becoming among the first Buddhist universities in the country, WE NEED YOUR HELP! PLEASE CONSIDER OFFERING YOUR TIME THIS SEMESTER AS A MAITRIPA COLLEGE VOLUNTEER.

As you all know, the benefits of offering service to a Dharma organization are many and vast, as are the benefits of offering service to those who have given so much to us—our teachers, our Dharma brothers and sisters, and our community. Please consider giving some of your precious time to help Maitripa continue to flourish and grow—we cannot move forward without you!

If you are interested in offering service to Maitripa College, PLEASE CLICK HERE TO FILL OUT AND SUBMIT THE VOLUNTEER FORM, specifying your skills & interest, or email Leigh at programs@maitripa.org, or call the office at 503.235.2477 to speak to someone in person.

Thank you so much,
Yangsi Rinpoche
President, Maitripa College
