Tashi Choling's Buildings Remain Closed For Now

We have been closely monitoring the development of the COVID-19 situation locally here in Jackson County as well as in our neighboring counties. And we have been frequently consulting with medical professionals and tracking evolving national, state, and county safety recommendations. Our goal is to be able to reopen the Temple and grounds for sangha and visitors as soon as it is safe to do so.

Based on the current situation, we feel comfortable opening the outside temple grounds for visits by individuals or small groups of friends and family. Feel free to come out and do korwa at the Vajrasattva Statue Garden, Guru Rinpoche Pavilion, and Vimalamitra building. You may also use the restroom and water in the barn-shaped building near the Cottage (formerly known as the Mousehouse) as well as the outside restrooms across from the East Wing. The water hose under the stairs outside the East Wing can be used for filling water bottles with potable water as well.

Please note that the East Wing and the Temple will continue to be closed to all visitors for the time being. While we know many of you would like to visit, the safety of our sangha and local communities is our first priority. Based on the current situation in our local area—and in consultation with medical professionals—we feel it is not yet possible to safely hold practices in the Temple or allow visitors inside in the Temple and East Wing at this time. We will update our policy when circumstances in our local area change sufficiently.

In the meantime, we hope everyone will continue to join us for online practices. To read Rinpoche’s recent message encouraging us to continue attending practices (click here). Also, here is the page with the Zoom link and all other info you need for our monthly practices (click here).

May the sufferings of this pandemic ease throughout our struggling world, and may practitioners soon be able to once again assemble to practice in sacred spaces! May there be benefit and auspiciousness for all, and may all disease, danger and strife be swiftly dispelled!
