Osel Shen Phen Ling offers regular programs on meditation instruction and Buddhist studies, as well as traditional practices in the Gelug tradition, with regular visits from qualified traveling teachers throughout the year. In addition to our regular program below, we offer educational programs for beginning and intermediate students.  We also engage in special Dharma practice days to increase the positive potential of all sentient beings and remove obstacles on the path to enlightenment.
