Tibetan Buddhist Sangha

Please check the time for each date you plan to attend. Most of our monthly are from 9:00 - 10:30 am. On silent retreat mornings (6:00 - 9:00 am), we follow with a pot-luck breakfast and then the Sangha from 10:00 - 11:30 am. 

The silent retreat dates for 2018 are January 27, May 19, July 28, and October 27. 

You are invited to attend monthly meditations and teachings to generate loving kindness and compassion to learn and experience the richness of Buddhist Teachings.

In Buddhism, Sangha is a word meaning community or congregation, spiritually developed or not, ordained or not. Members of a Sangha are viewed in Tibetan Buddhism as precious, because they are pursuing the virtuous desire for knowledge and liberation from suffering. The Three Jewels; Buddha - one who is awake, Dharma - the truth and the Sangha- the community, are the foundation for taking refuge and delighting in each others good company.

Traditional Tibetan prayers, rituals, chanting, visualization and meditation are all a part of these monthly gatherings.

What to bring: A journal for notes. Prayer books and copies of the Dharma are provided. 


No registration is required. Online payment is accepted for these classes.

In the event of inclement weather that might cause us to cancel, please call 610-285-6145. Our outgoing message will let you know if we will not hold the class.

Fee: $10 (suggested Dana (offering))
“I come from the East, most of you [here] are Westerners. If I look at you superficially, we are different, and if I put my emphasis on that level, we grow more distant. If I look on you as my own kind, as human beings like myself, with one nose, two eyes, and so forth, then automatically that distance is gone. We are the same human flesh. I want happiness; you also want happiness. From that mutual recognition, we can build respect and real trust of each other. From that can come cooperation and harmony.”
— His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
