Meditation Guidance and Appointments
Personal meditation guidance session (PMGS)
1. General appointments
2. Specific appointments (PMGS).
General appointments of a lay Buddhist follower meeting a monk. This means if the monk is available, you can meet him at any time convenient in the temple. There are no rules into this traditional method.
Nirodha upholds this traditional method of open access, however in these sessions specific meditation instructions are not given.
How to request a General appointment
A General appointment should be requested by directly contacting the monk. Traditional offerings can be offered. Refrain from offering food after 12:00 noon.
