Venerable Robina Courtin

Monday, June 17, (All day) to Sunday, June 23, (All day) 2019

Kadampa Center is happy to welcome Venerable Robina Courtin for a week-long visit with teachings from 7-9  every evening, a weekend workshop and our Sunday morning Dharma.

Don't miss this dynamic teacher who combines a precise knowledge of Dharma with a challenging and compassionate teaching style. 

Veberable Robina will arrive, very auspiciously, on Saka Dawa, a Buddha holy day that marks Shakyamuni Buddha's birth, enlightenment and parinirvana (passing from this life).

   

Come experience Venerable Robina's unique teaching style, which penetrates through the fog of confusion to the essence of the question at hand.

Supporting the teachings

Supporting the teachings is an incredibly powerful and important act -- it is a practice of the highest form of generosity – giving the means to enlightenment. Kadampa Center has for many years operated within the ideal of offering teachings without charging a fee, so that money is not an obstacle for anyone to hear the precious teachings and participate in the practices. We rely on the generous hearts of those who are moved to support the spiritual offerings and keep them open to everyone regardless of ability to pay. Supporting the teachings benefits not just the Center and those who attend, but it also greatly benefits the donor, because it creates the causes to meet the teachings again in future lives, and deepens the connection with the teacher. 

Kadampa Center offers two ways to support the teachings: Sponsorships and Donations.

Sponsorships begin at $108.

Sponsors receive:

 - The opportunity to attend a private tea with the teacher at the end of the visit, on Saturday, June 22. We must receive the sponsorship by Wednesday, June 19 to assure your place at the tea.

 - The opportunity to write a personal dedication that we will post on the gompa door for all to share.  We must receive the sponsorship and dedication by two days before the teacher’s visit begins to assure we have time to print and post your dedication.

There may be more than one sponsor for any event.

Donations are any amount less than $108.

Donors of $50 or more receive:

 - The opportunity to write a personal dedication that we will post on the gompa door for all to share. We must receive the donation and dedication by two days before the teacher’s visit begins to assure we have time to print and post your dedication.
 

Supporting the teachings is a two-step process
 

Step One  is dedicating your generosity (click here).

Step Two  is making the donation or sponsorship (use the buttons below on this page),

Dedications may be very simple - "For my mother, Rosemary" - or they might encompass more extensive spiritual wishes, such as "May these teachings be the cause to liberate all sentient beings," or wishes for the teacher's long life, to benefit a person who is ill - any heart-felt positive intention!  You also can dedicate for more than one intention.

Use our secure online community to donate by clicking your choice below.
