About Us

imagesPJF5ZIURKatog 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.
