Tonglen & Round the Clock Practice Request for Namdrol Miranda Adams

December 19th, 2011 by

Please include Namdrol Miranda Adams, Dean of Maitripa College, in your tonglen practice. She had a seriuos stroke on Wednesday, Dec. 14. Namdrol is a very dedicated practitioner of the dharma and a close student of Maitripa’s president, Yangsi Rimpohe, who has requested that people come to Maitripa to practice over the weekend in order to support her recovery. Their shrine room will be open 24/7 through Monday so that people can support Namdrol with their prayers and practice. In particular, they need people to come between 11pm-7am to keep practice continuous.

The Shambhala community has close ties with Maitripa and we would like to respond to their call for help. Maitripa is located at 119 SE Market Street, on the of SE Market and 11th & just a few blocks south of Hawthorne.
