The Jokhang Meditation Hall at Maitripa College 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 on the home page for the current schedule of Jokhang Program events. In the spirit of generosity, most of our Jokhang programs are offered to the public free of charge, although you are invited to offer a donation as an expression of your support.
You may request prayers from the Maitripa community at any time using the form provided on this page (click here for details). We read all requests during the weekly Thursday evening public meditation events (7:30-9 on most Thursdays but please check the Calendar in case of holiday or other changes to the schedule).
