Yoga in Buddhism

Yoga in Buddhism

We welcome Losang Samten to Chico as he begins the sand mandala at the Museum of Northern California Art (MONCA) October 18.    As many of us know, thousands of years ago in Northern India and surrounding mountain regions like Tibet, yoga practices and Buddhist thought were available for study and development by teachers and students of meditation. It was a very rich time for the seekers who found their way there.

Today we often hear of yoga and buddhism as two separate lineages or directions to take. This talk is an opportunity to think about what yoga is and what Buddhism is. Losang Samten will undoubtedly have many insights to share in his delightful storytelling manner. Please join us at the Yoga Center in welcoming Losang Samten!

Questions for Losang will be accepted until October 21 at ritvashanta12@gmail.com.
