4/3/2020 - Online Events: Mon/Thurs Meditation on Zoom

Monday and Thursday meditation will now be held online using Zoom led by Bhante Sutadhara.

Please be sure to install zoom on your device at least 15 minutes before meeting. For computers: https://zoom.us/signup, for devices use the appropriate install tool (AppStore, PlayStore, etc.)

The free version of Zoom limits meetings to 40 minutes which is why we have scheduled two separate meetings. They will use the same meeting ID but you will have to join each meeting separately. We have scheduled them with a 5 minute break between the first and the second. Click the links below to join the meetings.

A Celebration of the New Year (Losar)
and the Sacred Art of Tibet

Known in Tibetan as göchen thangka (precious-cloth scroll images) or göku (cloth images), these pictures are a patchwork of fine silk satins and brocades.  Thangkas (religious scroll pictures) are generally painted with mineral colors and gold on a cotton canvas and then framed in silk brocade. Long valued by Tibetan Buddhists and Himalayan peoples by the thirteenth century this silk cloth was being used to create religious images of great value, both materially and spiritually.

One of the only westerners trained in the rare Buddhist art of silk appliqué thangkas, Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo is passionate about the preservation and evolution of this cultural tradition. His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave his blessings to Leslie’s work and encouraged her to make images that speak to the spiritual aspirations of people across cultures and religions.

An Evening with the Artist

Friday March 7 @ 7:00-9:00 PM

In a joint fundraising event for the Ventura Buddhist Center and Threads of Awakening, the Center will serve tea and snacks and Leslie will share the one-hour documentary film, Creating Buddhas: the Making and Meaning of Fabric Thangkas, and be available for discussion afterwards. This event is freely offered , donations gratefully accepted!
