Columbus KTC Continues Dharma Talks and Programs During Public Health Hiatus

In light of the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Columbus Karma Thegsum Chöling suspended its schedule of classes and meditations beginning March 15, 2020.

To help continue the Columbus KTC’s commitment to providing dharma instruction and practice for the public in the midst of the emergency, KTC teachers and chant leaders will be taking to the Internet to provide online classes, prayers and Dharma Talks for the foreseeable future.  A full schedule will be published as soon as it becomes available.

The first Dharma Talk during KTC’s public health hiatus was Lama Kathy’s “Prayers for a Pandemic.” Part 1 was webcast on Sunday March 15, and the second installment is scheduled to be webcast on Sunday, March 22.

The first installment covered simple practices to help reduce anxiety and promote inner stability. You can see it here.

The Breathing and Visualization Relaxation Exercise Lama Kathy described during the Part 1 of the class can be found here.

And the “Prayer that Saved Sakya from Sickness” can be found here.

A recording of Lama Karma Drodhul singing the Tibetan of “The Prayer that Saved Sakya from Sickness” can be found on SoundCloud.

Next week, you can watch Lama Kathy’s “Prayers for a Pandemic Part 2” on her YouTube page.

And check back here next week for links for the downloads of prayers and other materials referenced in Part 2 of the class.

Stay safe, keep practicing, and keep dedicating that merit and virtue.

Together, we will see each other through.

May all beings benefit!
