What’s Happening at KPC this Weekend?
KPC’s grounds, stupa gardens, and Peace Park are open to visitors every day from dawn to dusk. Come see what’s happening in the Buddhist Giving Garden, visit the Peace Park, circumambulate the stupas, or just find a bench to sit quietly. We look forward to seeing you!
8am-8pm – Prayer Room open to visitors – masks optional
7pm – Medicine Buddha – on Facebook Live or YouTube
Daily tsogs – check tara.org/pray-with-us/ for schedule
10am – Meditation Class – in-person or on YouTube
12pm – Riwo Sang Chod smoke offering puja (in-person or on YouTube), immediately followed by the Daily NamCho accumulation practice (in-person or on Zoom)
10am – Meditation Class- in-person or on YouTube

2pm – Rigdzin Dupa practice at the Guru Rinpoche statue in Peace Park and on Facebook Live. (If there is inclement weather, the practice will relocate to the Prayer Room and be streamed on Zoom.) This is a powerful practice for dispelling obstacles and celebrates the masculine energy of method, or compassion.
Bring a chair or blanket to sit on. If you need a copy of the practice, visit tara.org/pray-with-us/ and download the text from the event on our Google calendar. You do not have to stay for the whole practice, but you’re welcome to join us!
4pm – Join us to drum for rain! Despite the rain this week, the DC region is experiencing moderate to severe drought. Many other regions of the world are also experiencing drought conditions. We will dedicate our prayers to bringing life-giving rain to all who need it!
Please bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and any drums you have – the more the merrier! If you don’t have any drums, there may be extra available. Either way, you can chant along with everyone.
The Tara mantra is Om Tare Tuttare Ture So Ha (pronounced om tar-ray too-tar-ray too-ray so-ha). To learn more about Tara, please visit Tara.org/deities-and-practices/tara/
See you there!
While you’re here, visit our adorable goats, pigs, geese and chickens! Pick up some eggs to take home, donate non-perishable food to the bins on the front porch (donations are transported weekly to local food pantries), check out the Buddhist Giving Garden, walk around the stupas, or just find a bench to sit quietly! We’d love to see you!
