Welcome to the fifth and final unit of this course of studying The Precious Vase together as a "Santi Maha Sangha," presented at Tsegyalgar East in Conway, MA.
Our aim is to make this complex material clear for new students, to support those preparing for the Base exam, and to provide opportunity for in-depth review for experienced practitioners. Through studying and practicing together, may we grow in understanding, enriching ourselves and others!
