Special Announcement: New SUNDAY Hours for KTC for the Summer!

Dear Dharma Friends,

Columbus KTC needs to trim its Sunday schedule for the Summer to save money on security costs.

Columbus KTC currently is charged $30 per hour for security at Tifereth Israel when security is needed outside the regular Tifereth Israel school or event schedule.

Tifereth Israel’s Hebrew School (which meets on Sunday mornings) is out for the summer, and during this time, we now will be expected to pay all Sunday security costs. If we do not scale back our Sunday schedule, we’d be paying in excess of $1,000 per month to Tifereth Israel for security.

In order to save money, we have created the following Summer Sunday Schedule, starting Sunday June 12 (after Lama Karma’s visit) and continuing through Sunday Sept. 4:

Summer Sunday Schedule
June 12th–September 4th

9:30 a.m. Doors open at Tifereth Israel.
10 a.m. Open Meditation (Lower Social Hall)
10 a.m. Introduction to Meditation (Room 204)
10 a.m. Pujas (First Floor Nursery, off the Main Atrium – EXCEPT for June 12, when Pujas will meet in Classroom 206)

  • First Sunday: Chenrezig sadhana
  • Second Sunday: Green Tara sadhana
  • Third Sunday: Mahakala sadhana
  • Fourth Sunday: Medicine Buddha sadhana
  • Fifth Sunday: (July only): Chenrezig sadhana

11 a.m. Tea Time
11:30 a.m. Dharma Talk (Lower Social Hall)
11:30 a.m. Introduction to Buddhism (Room 204)
1 p.m. Last person should be out of Tifereth by 1 p.m.

Tuesday Chenrezig will continue as usual Tuesday nights at 7pm at Tifereth.

We’ll also be organizing a special all day retreat for Ngondro practitioners this summer. Details to follow soon!

All the best,
