  • 10:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Sravasti Abbey 20th Anniversary Celebration!
10 am to 3:30 pm Pacific Time

Can you believe it! Twenty years!

Venerable Thubten Chodron and two cats moved onto the newly purchased Sravasti Abbey property in October 2003.

Today, there are 22 monastics—monks and nuns—and thousands of guests have passed through the Abbey in person.

Tens of thousand more have “visited” the Abbey online through the two websites, our YouTube channel, Facebook, and Instagram.

Join us as we remember, honor, and reflect on Sravasti Abbey’s journey over the last two decades and set aspirations for the future.

The day includes Dharma talks and reminscence with our founder, Venerable Thubten Chodron, comments from residents and Dharma friends, videos, photo displays, lunch, and a tour of the new Buddha Hall.

Seattle: Making Mindfulness Meaningful

  • Oct 27, 2023 - Oct 27, 2023
  • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Making Mindfulness Meaningful
October 27, 7:30 pm to 9 pm Pacific Time
Hosted by Dharma Friendship Foundation

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness of Mindfulness (Body, Feeling, Mind, Phenomena) continues to be one of the central practices for all Buddhist traditions since Shakyamuni Buddha spoke the Satipatthana Sutra over 2,000 years ago. In modern times, particularly in America, the practice of mindfulness has become immensely popular, though often mixed with secular motivations, leading to confusion regarding the deeper purpose of mindfulness meditation in the Buddhist context. Dharma Friendship Foundation is delighted to host a special visit with Venerable Thubten Chodron for an evening of meditation and discussion on this topic which opens the door to liberation and enlightenment and is a foundational practice in both the Theravada and Mahayana traditions.
