Welcome to Our Meditation Practice

Study Program

Tibet House California invites you to attend our weekly teachings on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM at the Trinity Cathedral Church of Sacramento located at 2620 Capitol Avenue.

Shantideva

The Way of The Bodhisattva  

Santideva’s Bodhicaryavatara or Bodhisattvacaryavatara has been one of the most influential Indian texts in the Tibetan tradition. It has also become both popular and influential among Western practitioners, and has become almost required reading in many academic courses in contemporary universities. The work is arguably only second to the Dhammapada in its popularity and in the number of translations into modern languages (Asian as well as European). The work’s popularity perhaps needs an explanation, and it certainly demands translations that are both accurate and readable.

Lord Buddha

Relative Truth-Ultimate Truth

The Buddhist teaching of the "two truths" is the gateway to understanding the often-misunderstood philosophy of emptiness. This volume is an excellent source of support for anyone interested in cultivating a more holistic and transformative understanding of the world around them and ultimately of their own conciousness.

Tibet House California's main goal is supporting the Tibetan Children's Village in India so that the young men and women of Tibet will be equipped to rebuild Tibet when their homeland achieves freedom from China.
