Frequently Asked Questions
All students, new and experienced, are welcome to attend these transmissions. The prerequisite is a good motivation and the aspiration to achieve enlightenment!
Of course attending the whole program is best, but we can attend on a daily basis according to our available time. We don't yet have the daily schedule but when we do we will let everyone know.
To the extent we can establish the sequence of empowerments prior to the start of the "wangchen" we will let you know.Some work study opportunities will be available on a case by case basis.
Food will not be available at ODD, but there are many excellent restaurants & coffee shops within 2-3 blocks of the temple. We plan to have an online registration process in place soon, so watch your inbox and check the website for additional information.
We will need a lot of help during the program, so please plan to participate as much as you can! We will send more details during the registration process.
