Up-Coming Events



Fundraising Dinner for Green Tara


Saturday, May 9, 2009 •
7pm

DLM will host a dinner on Saturday May 9, 2009 to raise funds to pay for a four foot Green Tara statue to add to the shrine. Held in our community room the evening will consist of a four course sit down dinner, live music and the unveiling of the Green Tara statue and accompanying Avalokiteshvara statue that will eventually sit on either side of the Shakyamuni Buddha that currently sits on the shrine.

The Avalokiteshvara statue was donated to DLM last year. For numerous auspicious reasons connected to the history and lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and for the relevance of balancing the
energy of the shine, a matching Green Tara statue was purchased. This will provide a suitable and authentic shrine in consonance with the ancient traditions to house the entire collection of Kaangyur & Tengyur, Buddha’s original teachings and treatises by great Indian master-scholars (running into more than 300 volumes) donated to the Center by His Holiness the Dalai Lama during his last visit to Atlanta.


Our goal is to raise $6,000 to cover the costs of the statue, shipping costs and in having the statue consecrated.

Tickets for the dinner are $50 per person with all money raised going directly towards achieving this goal. The dinner is generously sponsored by various individuals from the Sangha. Only 40 tickets are available so early registration is suggested.

Nyung Ne


June 5 - 8, 2009


To commemorate Saka Dawa, the month of Buddha's enlightenment, DLM will offer a Nyung Ne retreat for purification and the accumulation of positive energy. Geshe Ngawang Phende will lead this three day intensive retreat based on Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion.


The retreat is open to those who have received the Avalokiteshvara Empowerment or any Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment. This intensive practice involves maintaining the eight Mahayana precepts, as well as additional vows on the second full day to abstain from eating, drinking or
talking for 24 hours. The meditation sessions include chants, prostrations and mantra recitations.


The retreat is being offered free of cost. A voluntary offering is recommended. Space
for this retreat will be very limited. To ensure a place, please register as soon as possible. Registration will close when the space is filled or by June 2. To register please call 404-982-0051.



Foundation Series II

July 11 to November
14, 2009 - Second Saturday of each month


Due to popular demand, Geshe Lobsang Tenzin will teach a second round of the Foundation
Series on the second Saturday of each month. Beginning with Shamatha
Mediation, this five-part series introduces the essential elements of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, theory and practice. Though the subjects will be the same as the current Foundation Series, which concludes on May 9, the teaching will be very different as they are coming from our spiritual director Geshe Lobsang Tenzin.


These teachings provide a basis for individual and group practice at the center and serve as a prerequisite for more advanced retreats. First session begins on July 11; the four subsequent sessions will be held on the 2nd Saturdays of each month.


Registration deadline March 10 for the third session. Register by calling our Administrative Office: 404-982-0051. Fee: $60 (non-members)/ $54 (members) or $250 (non-members)/ $225(members) for the five–part series or free to members who are repeating.

The Healing Chöd is a ritual derived from Macig Labdro’s thousand-year-old practice that the recently deceased, deeply revered Kunzang Dechen Lingpa Rinpoche revealed.
