There are no limits to the good we can do when we bring together our sincere wishes to be of benefit, a personal sense of responsibility, and a continual commitment to deepen our spiritual journey. We will spend this once-a-year, very special evening, rejoicing and celebrating together.


Saturday December 7, 6-9 pm

We are delighted to invite you into our home; please come celebrate with us in Southeast Portland, and experience a taste of what we do here. Festive delicacies to eat and drink, as well as joy, activities, and many opportunities to learn, rejoice, and relax will be on hand for all!

We’re opening up Maitripa College and inviting you into our magical environment in which you can learn, participate in, or just watch traditional heart-opening Tibetan Buddhist practices: sutra & mantra writing; mandala & light offerings; circumambulating holy objects; turning prayer wheels; and more. 

Special This Year

We have invited some Maitripa College students to share with you a creative expression of what it is like to be part of this unique community, and, as always, you will have the opportunity to review and rejoice in Maitripa’s founding, programs, and the incredible work and service our students and graduates are doing in the world. 

Delicious Food & Drink

There will be light vegetarian and vegan offerings throughout the evening, as well as a hot chocolate bar, festive drinks, and dessert. 

Entertainment & Music 

Details TBA. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn and sing with us. 

Shop & Support

We’ll also have a small store with various items: holy objects, books, decorative home pieces, jewelry and more that people can purchase—the sales of which all support Maitripa College.
