Dear Dharma Friends,

We are very honor to have H.E. Rigzin Dorjee Rinpoche coming to Alexandria again for some great Dharma activities. Last year Rinpoche bestowed upon us the wonderful teaching on Phowa and Phowa Empowerment. This year, to deepen our practices, we will have the Four Immearsurables, Introduction to Dzochen, Zambala Empowerment, Four Seals, and Four Reliances. Please see the schedule and location below and help us spread the word.  Rinpoche is a student of H.H.
