Hello, dear LMB community,

We have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person classes and dharma programs through March 31st. We will be offering some events virtually through FB Live -or- Zoom depending on the program: Guided meditations on Sunday morning and Monday evening, Ven Tenzin’s Unlocking True Happiness class, and Jon Landaw’s Training Our Mind class will be streamed from the Main Gompa. Links to join classes will follow.

Additionally, Land of Medicine Buddha is canceling all Facility Rental groups, Road Scholar programs, and Private bookings through March 31st.

The Land will remain open to the public, as well as the Main Gompa. Though if you are having any symptoms, please stay home! The Bookstore will be open with reduced hours from Wednesday through Sunday, 12pm to 5pm.

Lots of good advice has come out from many reputable sources to help you stay healthy including the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. We will do our part here at LMB by dedicating for all sentient beings to have perfect health now and in the future during our daily Medicine Buddha Puja. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama recommends reciting Tara mantras. Additionally, click HERE for advice from our precious teacher, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche on Handling Illness from our friends over at the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive.

Please take this opportunity to get out in nature or do whatever makes you feel strong and healthy, call or text a friend, meditate, cherish others AND let someone in your circle know if you are having any symptoms of anxiety or depression. Big love to each and every one of you!

Wishing you good health,
Mer Stafford,
Executive Director
