Rinpoche will lead Vajrasattva on Thursdays at 5pm and Medicine Buddha on Sundays at 11am.

Thank you for your understanding, and for help keeping us all safe and healthy! Zero cases of COVID-19 have been reported at Maitripa College as of today.

The three educational pillars of Maitripa College — SCHOLARSHIP, MEDITATION, and SERVICE — embody the extrinsic study of Buddhist thought, the internal exploration of Buddhist practice, and the activity that results from the integration of these. —Yangsi Rinpoche, Maitripa College President
