The monastery is opening its doors to those who wish to practice and learn from fully ordained monks at the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas.
This year we will explore developing humility, understanding how the monastic form works and seeing the benefits of a strong daily practice. The days will start at 3:40 AM and end at 9:30 PM and includes community service within TM, talks by bhikshus, conversations with the Abbot and more. This is a great retreat for someone interested in monastic life.

Madalena Tam will be speaking tomorrow (3/18) and Tuesday (3/19) from 7:45 pm to 9 pm in the DRBU 2nd floor lobby.
Tomorrow evening she will be speaking about the current state of Buddhism in China and will speak about personal experiences between her and Venerable Master Hua on Tuesday evening.
