Katog Yeshe Ling is located on Orcas Island, WA and represents practitioners from San Juan Island and Lopez Island as well as other surrounding areas.
We meet every Sunday from 4:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m. in the shrine room at Frontline Call Center at 9 Hope Lane, Eastsound WA 98245. We practice Tonglen, Heart Sutra or Shamata on alternating weeks.
We offer these basic guidelines:
- Remove hats and shoes before entering.
- Traditionally one sits cross-legged on a cushion on the floor. If this is not possible because of physical problems, one may sit in a chair.
- Feel free to bring your own cushion, it may be left in the shrine room.
- Dharma books & puja texts should not be put on the floor, but on a table or cushion..
- Do not face the souls of your feet towards the shrine or the teacher.
- When entering the shrine room, a Buddhist practitioner may do three prostrations facing the shrine, or make a short bow with hands folded. This is done as a symbol of the surrender of oneself and the desire to benefit all beings.
- It is appropriate to stand when a Lama enters the room, sitting only after the Lama is seated.
