Vassa at the Washington Buddhist Vihara

Dear Dhamma friends in the Washington, Baltimore, Richmond, USA area,

I am spending the vassa  (monks three month rains retreat) period at the Washington Buddhist Vihara on 5017 16th St. Washington, D.C. Here is the schedule of Talks, meditation classes and one day retreats that I will be conducting as part of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Vihara this year. This was the first Theravada Buddhist Vihara or temple established in North America. This is also the same vihara where Bhante Henepola Gunaratana was the abbot before he moved to the Bhavana Society.
