Geshe Dakpa is currently at Deer Park Buddhist Center in Wisconsin assisting with rituals and prayers for Geshe Lhudrup Sopa who passed away on August 28th. We have a tentative return date of 9/14 for Geshe Dakpa however, the actual date is dependent upon how long Geshe Sopa remains in clear light meditation. We will post a notice to this website when Geshe Dakpa’s classes will resume. All our other classes and events will continue as scheduled. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
