Sunday Meditation


Sundays 11:00 - noon MST at the Awam Tibetan Buddhist Institute, 3400 E Speedway Blvd, Ste 204, Tucson AZ and on 


During the Summer, we will be practicing from our Meditation Practice Manual with preliminary practices, yidam practice, meditation, and closing prayers. Khenpo-la will include one of the popular prayers as an addition to each weekly practice.  

The Buddha considered group practice to be an essential part of basic dharma practice. The effects are multiplied by the number of participants. Please join us!

For those watching live or recorded on Facebook, the "Meditation Practice Manual" may be downloaded  under "Resources & Links". The recorded videos are also available on  for 30 days.

Wednesday Mindfulness Practice:

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness

Wednesdays at 6pm MST (about 30 minutes) at the Awam Tibetan Buddhist Institute, 3400 E Speedway Blvd, Ste 204, Tucson AZ, (Not available on Facebook Live.) 

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness (Satipatthana Sutra) are based upon 4 topics, contemplations on (1) the body, (2) feelings, (3) mind, and (4) phenomena, totaling 21 contemplations. We will practice one contemplation each week, with Q&A at the end. Mindfulness practices help increase our mindfulness of body, speech, and mind throughout the day, and facilitate our other Vajrayana practices.
