We are currently offering a weekly Dharma class to inmates at the Otero County Prison Facility in Chaparral, New Mexico. It started with a small group of 4 inmates attending the first class on February 7, 2015. We have continued offering weekly in-person classes since then until now, with a break during the Covid-19 pandemic period. Several inmates have expressed their appreciation for the religious service we offer. We currently have about 6-12 inmates attending our weekly classes on Friday evenings. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to practice giving Dharma. May we continue to have the capacity to give!
