East End Dharma Group is a satellite of Kagyu Thubten Chöling Monastery. EEDG's main function is to act as a meeting place for practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism who live on the East End of Long Island.
East End Dharma Group is particularly associated with the Kagyu Lineage, in the tradition of Kalu Rinpoche Dorje Chang, and Lama Norlha Rinpoche. EEDG acts as a place where those interested in Tibetan Buddhism can meet to practice meditation, and learn about the Dharma.
Currently, EEDG meets Friday evenings in Southampton, N.Y. for practice of shinay meditation and recitation of the Chenrezi sadhana. All are welcome. If you are completely new to Buddhism we can offer basic meditation instructions as well as general information regarding books, teachers, and so on.
With our Daily Dharma [Buddhist] Quotes we endeavor to act as a signpost for those interested in Tibetan Buddhism on the East End. We can help direct you to well respected Dharma teachers, teachings, books, and centers, as well as offer you a wealth of information regarding upcoming Dharma events in the NY area. EEDG strongly supports His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama, and His Holiness The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa.
Recommended donation per meditation session in Sagaponack is $5 - $10 but is by no means mandatory. The money does not go to EEDG, but to the gracious owner of the building where we hold our weekly practice sessions.
