Meditation instruction
Shinay Meditation Practice
Sitting meditation, called shinay in Tibetan or shamatha in Sanskrit, is an important part of Tibetan Buddhist practice. Our Introduction to meditation class, suitable for beginners and for practitioners who want a refresher, meets on Saturdays from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Amitabha Shrine Room. On Wednesday nights, from 7 to 8:30 P.M. in the Amitabha Shrine Room, we have half an hour of meditation with opening and closing prayers followed by an Introduction to Tibetan Buddhism class.
