Up until this year, on the first Tuesday of the month (April through December), one of the senior monks from Abhayagiri would visit Berkeley Buddhist Monastery to lead a tea time Q&A session followed by an evening program of chanting, meditation, and a Dhamma talk. Due to the pandemic, there will be virtual 1st Tuesday meetings for the remainder of 2020. It is important to frequently check the monastery calendar for updates and changes. These meetings are open to all. If you would like to participate in this and other online meetings, such as Upāsikā Day, join the Abhayagiri Parisa Group via Groups.io to receive advance notifications of events and dial-in information.
