Special Events

man meditating in grass by treesAt Kosala Buddhist Center, in addition to our regular weekly classes, we also offer regular day courses on a variety of Buddhist subjects and annual empowerments.

Our day courses are a time when members from our weekly classes come together to enjoy teachings given by our resident teacher Ethan Lechner.   They are generally held on Saturdays starting at 10am.  These events also serve as a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and catch up with old ones.  Everyone is always welcome to join us.

Once a year Kosala Center also hosts an empowerment. These unique events are typically attended by people from all over North Carolina and often even by those from out-of-state. During these very special events, attendees immerse themselves in teachings, meditations, and a traditional ceremony.  These provide blessings for the mind which ultimately allow us to truly embody the beautiful qualities of compassion and wisdom, the essence of Buddhist practice.
