Event Details

Dear DDYP friends,

It is time for our monthly gathering! It was great having some of you at our previous gathering. Hope you had good experiences and gained some useful knowledge through the Heart Sutra discussion and tea meditation. Event photos are now available at

November is Thanksgiving month!

This month, we will have Eight-form moving and sitting meditation practices led by Venerable Chang Yu, followed by a Thanksgiving Tea Ceremony.
