Here you can get in touch with what is happening in our community, meet friends, learn about Buddhist Philosophy, and most importantly discover methods that may help you to overcome suffering, develop compassion and gain insight. We are a collection of FPMT study groups in Central Ontario, meeting in Kitchener/Waterloo, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and Toronto.

The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition ('FPMT') transmits the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through Tibetan Buddhist teachings, meditation, community service, retreat centers, and projects that support the Inspiration and Guide of the FPMT His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The FPMT is based on the Gelugpa tradition of Lama Tsong Khapa of Tibet as taught by our founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe and spiritual director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Dear friends,

As you probably have noticed there have not been any recent updates on Dekyi Lee.  This is because she continues to be at the rehabilitation program in Hamilton focusing on her physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being.  She has long days where she receives physiotherapy and is working diligently to improve her mobility and physical and mental strength.
She is walking short distances with the aid of a walker. She continues to feel some physical pain and physical and emotional exhaustion at times and is learning ways to conserve her energy.  She is being supported by the health care team to work towards independence.  She is learning her 'at present' limitations and finding ways to accommodate these in her day to day living.  She recently had an outing to a family member's home which was tiring but rejuvenating.

Please know that Dekyi Lee continues to be so grateful for the love that she has received from the community and believes that this has been truly influential on her healing.  She sends her love to you all.  

As Dekyi Lee continues to learn how to manage her present limitations it is requested that we maintain the no visitor request at this time.

Should you wish to send a card or a note to Dekyi, her mailing address is:

Regional Rehabilitation Centre

Dear friends,

We are happy to tell you that Dekyi-Lee has now moved to a Rehabilitation Centre in Hamilton.  She is receiving physiotherapy and working on her mobility and physical strength.  Everyday she is getting stronger while managing the ups and downs of her recovery.

She is beginning to enjoy her food more as her ability to manage new foods increases. She has taken the opportunity to use a wheelchair to go outside and feel the sunshine and air on her body. She is working on improving her health and wellness in her body, mind and spirit.

Dekyi-Lee continues to need the time to keep her focus inward.  She still tires easily and must conserve her energy as she continues on her healing journey. As such, she is continuing to request no visitors or calls at this time.  But if you wish to send her a card or a note, here is her new mailing address -

Regional Rehabilitation Centre

Dekyi-Lee has asked that we let everyone know that she wakes up everyday grateful for her life and your love!

Announncing a Buddhist discussion group that will be starting on April 23, 2014 at 6:30-9:30p.m. at 37 Bulwer Street (near Queen and Spadina) in Toronto. The group will meet bi-weekly, every second Wednesday, from 6:30-9:30p.m.

The group is affiliated with the FPMT (http://fpmt.org), a worldwide Buddhist teaching and retreat organization that follows the lineage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. FPMT provides us with organizational support, teaching resources and can assist us with inviting guest teachers from around the world to provide special lectures.  I think it will be a great benefit to a study group in Toronto to have the support of such a large and well established organization.
