Weekly Mahakala Practice

The weekly practice group of Six-Arm Mahakala meets on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm. Lama Nyugu hosts this practice session via the virtual media platform Zoom. Six-Arm Mahakala is the principal protector of the Shangpa Kagyu lineage. Mahakala is the wrathful form of Chenrezig, therefore it is required to have the empowerment of Six-Arm Mahakala to practice this sadhana. However, it is permissible for those without the empowerment to sit and observe the practice. If you'd like to join this practice or have any questions, contact Lama Nyugu at or (707) 601-5466.

Tibetan Reading & Writing Practice

Tibetan Buddhist practice texts are written in the Tibetan language. Anyone who is interested in learning to read and write the Tibetan script, you can register for the course or tutoring sessions with Lama Nyugu. These are available to sangha and non-sangha members. You can register by calling or emailing Lama Nyugu at or (707) 601-5466. Pema Zhima commented about the course: "My new skills at reading and writing Tibetan will be invaluable for my life practice."
