Every Wednesday Bhante Soma, from Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple in Carlisle, will be teaching meditation and Dhamma in the back yard of Lotus House Retreat Center in Mechanicsburg, which is directly behind Carlisle Bowen Works.

We will meet at 7 pm. Please bring your own cushion, chair, blanket, or whatever will make you comfortable sitting in the grass. It is a shaded area. You probably want to come with some insect repellent.

As Bhante begins his teaching schedule, he will hopefully be teaching 75+ people every week. For the health of Bhante and for the health of our Sangha, please be respectful of social distancing.

If it's raining, Bhante will host a Facebook live meditation from the Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple at 7 pm.

Donations of at least $10 are so gratefully accepted and will all be used for support of Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple and Bhante Soma.
