3rd Annual KTC Jax Benefit Dinner & Dharma Talk With Lama Losang
It is the great hope of Karma Thegsum Choling Jacksonville to one day have a permanent location of our own where we can teach and practice Dharma, always with a motivation to benefit countless sentient beings. This aspiration has become more urgent since KTC experienced, last year, a disastrous flooding incident of the building we have rented for 14 years now. The aspiration for a permanent location for our KTC, owned and maintained by us, has become ever more urgent.
To foster this vision, we will host our 3rd Permanent Center Fund Benefit Dinner at Ani Karma Lhamo’s Residence, to be held Saturday, September 9th at 6:30 PM. Please join us for a wonderful vegan meal, and especially, to hear a Dharma Talk by Lama Losang called “The Art of Happiness.”
Lama Losang/Dr. David Bole, completed the traditional three year retreat at Karme Ling Retreat Center under the direction of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. He received getsul (intermediate) and gelong (full) monastic ordination from Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche. He is currently serving as the Resident Lama for Gainesville KTC and is the Spiritual Director of all the Florida KTCs. In addition, he received a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Florida. He is a licensed Acupuncture Physician, A.P. and Director of the Traditional Acupuncture Center in Gainesville, Florida. He is also a former member on the Board of Trustees at our parent monastery KTD.
Participants will be able to share company & conversation with this wonderful Lama of the Karma Kagyu Tradition as well as enjoy delicious Vegan Vietnamese food. “Pho Chay” will be the main dish served. Pho Chay is a popular, traditional Vietnamese rice noodle soup with vegetables and a unique, flavorful broth.
