Sunday Afternoon Meditation

Every Sunday afternoon from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm, City Campus 

This Mindfulness and Introspection Meditation class is designed by Venerable Pannasiri. It is aimed to guide those of us who are busy chasing dreams in the big apple, to redirect our attention to the nature of ourselves, to clear affliction and delusion, and to eventually get in touch with the purest wisdom we are endowed with.
