We are Closed.
Due to the current coronavirus situation, Chenrezig Institute is now temporarily closed to the public.
We are currently focusing on protecting our community of Sangha, Residents and Volunteers at this time, and we are following the Government’s advice closely.
We are planning and setting up online teaching and meditation options and these will be made available as soon as possible. This will allow the Dharma community of Chenrezig Institute to continue and flourish. We aim to keep people connected, even if meeting in person is not an option.
Please follow us on Facebook for updated information as it comes.
Advice given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche and resources can be found on the FPMT webpage.
Geshe Tsultrim, at this time, reminds us of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s advice of reciting the Tara Mantra and encourages us to recite 100 malas a day!
