All Kadampa centers are dedicated to all living beings. They belong to them, remaining in their service for all time, and can never be taken over by individuals or organizations and used for other purposes.
For this reason, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says that these centers are very precious and that whenever we engage in an action to benefit a center we are in fact benefitting all living beings. Through such actions we accumulate vast merit, purify negativities, and receive powerful blessings.
We set aside time each month for an opportunity for people to come together and cherish our center and in this way benefit our local community practically. Everyone welcome!
If you are new, and wondering how to participate in Center Cherishing, send an e-mail to [email protected] or call us at (608) 661-3211. While different months may have a main focus such as preparing our meditation room for a large event, we always have a list of projects and tasks from yard work, to cleaning, organizing, and creating. There are many ways to help! Reach out with any questions you may have.
Center Cherishing will take place February 18, March 18, April 22, and May 20.
