Upcoming Events

Day of Mindfulness with Joanne Friday: Freedom From Fear and Separation- Saturday December 10, 9:30-3:30.

Everyone is welcome. And maybe you have a friend who is curious about your practice!

Our November DOM just what we hoped for: a warm and joyous sharing of the dharma and building connections across sanghas when over 60 friends attended. We hope you’ll join us this Saturday. Joanne writes:

The registration fee of $20 supports the temple. However no one is required to pay anything to attend MPCGB DOMs. Kindly pre-register:

Please dress warmly, wear comfortable clothes and bring a bag lunch along with your own cup or mug. Tea will be available. Please note: no food or drink is allowed in the meditation hall.

Temple Vietnam is one mile from Forest Hills MBTA and the Arborway. On a map, notice that it is located between the Arboretum and Franklin Park. Search 68 Bradeen Street Roslindale, MA 02131, in your navigation. Drive inside the gate for plenty of parking or park at end of the street.
