KALYANA MITTA PROGRAM

In the Buddha’s time it was a common practice for more senior students of the Buddha to help the more junior students with their questions. This was a mentoring relationship and the senior students were called kalyana mitta.  The phrase “kalyana mitta” comes from the Pali Buddhist texts and means admirable friend or admirable companion. 

This kalyana mitta service is being offered as part of our Dharma in Action program which also offers many other programs such as meditation for teens, books through bars, prayers for peace day, a winter clothing drive with Mt Tabor Church, etc. 

If you would like to arrange to speak with a Kalyana Mitta or would like to learn more about the program then please send an email request to info@tibetanbuddhist.org.
