Nalandabodhi is a local Kagyu Tibetan Buddhist center, led by Ponlop Rinpoche of Seattle. Practices in this tradition sometimes vary from common Theravadan meditation, but are the same in many ways and, as usual, are all about wisdom, compassion, and waking up!
"A Sangha is a community of resistance, resisting the speed, violence and unwholesome ways of living that are prevalent in our society. Mindfulness is to protect ourselves and others. A good Sangha will lead us in the direction of harmony and awareness. The substance of the practice is most important. The forms can be adapted." ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
