1st Tuesday Tea and Dhamma Talk at Berkeley Buddhist Monastery

When: 5-9:30pm, November 7, 2023

Location: 2304 McKinley Ave, Berkeley, CA 94703, USA


Abhayagiri’s Berkeley First Tuesday program will be held today. Ajahn Amaro of Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in the UK will lead the program. The 7:30 - 9:30pm portion will be livestreamed on the Dharma Realm Live YouTube channel:

The schedule is as follows:

  • 5:00 - 6:00pm Tea Time Q&A with Ajahn Amaro - A great time to bring your Dhamma questions.  Kindly keep voices low in the lobby and hallway as you enter and exit the building. Please help yourself to tea and 'allowables' but arrive no earlier than 4:50PM.
  • 7:30 - 9:30pm Evening Session (Main Shrine Room) - Dhamma talk after chanting, refuges/precepts, and meditation. We would greatly appreciate your assistance in setting up for the evening and putting away chairs/cushions at the end. Doors for this session open at 7:15PM.

Note: Our host, the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery, has meditation and chanting programs from 5:15PM to 7:15PM in the main shrine room and these programs overlap with the First Tuesday program.  We would be very thankful if attendees can mingle outside the building during the break (6:00PM-7:15PM).
