Here at LTC we aim to look after your well-being on all levels. This includes taking all physical precautions to guard against the COVID-19 virus, as well as implementing the spiritual practices recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
It is important we remove any physical conditions for the virus to spread. But without addressing the deep karmic causes of sickness, our efforts at protection will have no power. We ask for your understanding in implementing this holistic approach.
Please stay home if you are feeling unwell or even a little under the weather. Just this simple action can become a bodhicitta practice of offering protection.
Changes to classes
We are holding Practices to Protect on Sunday afternoons from 15 March (2 pm – 4 pm) with mantras and meditations from Lama Zopa Rinpoche, as well as a relaxed on-going sutra recitation.
At the end of each class we are wiping down all chairs and tables with hospital grade disinfectant, and spraying any used blankets with Glen-20. There are extra wipes and tissues at the centre, and we are sensitively screening visitors and monitoring students.
- Wash your hands before going into class
- Leave your blanket on your seat when class finishes
- Immediately come into reception if you cough or sneeze
We are working on being able to livestream our classes so you don’t have to miss out if you cannot attend class. We hope to be able to stream the pujas as well.
Links to practices to do
Lama Zopa Rinpoche recently offered advice on practices to do to protect from the coronavirus, to help anyone who has the disease to heal and for it not to spread further to other countries. Click here for practices on the FPMT page.
