Tantric Meditation

Tantric meditation schedule in Santa Monica from the Sakya tradition of Buddhism.  Dechen hosts weekly group meditation practice in Santa Monica.

The Tantras were taught by the Buddha as advanced meditation practices that use skillful methods, including mantras and visualizations.

Overview of Tantric Meditation

The tantric teachings are followed in the vajrayana path of Buddhism. Vajrayana means ‘indestructible vehicle’ in Sanskrit and refers to the indestructible nature of the purity of mind.

This can be realized more quickly in this path than in the other ‘common paths’ in Buddhism.

Weekly Practice Schedule

 Tantric meditation practices including the meditations of Chenrezik and Green Tara, which originated in India but were spread widely through all the Buddhist schools in Tibet.

Here in Santa Monica we practice the authentic lineage of these meditations received from qualified teachers and Masters of the Sakya tradition.

Tuesdays at 7pm РChenrezik Meditation on Compassion 

Saturdays at 10.30am – Green Tara Meditation on Loving-Kindness

Sundays at 10.30am – Chenrezik Meditation on Compassion

We also celebrate the four great annual Buddha Day festivals with the Sixteen Arhats puja.

To attend these vajrayana meditations it’s necessary to have started on the Buddhist path by taking refuge and received the relevant initiation and reading transmission of the practice text.
