On Sunday, March 8th, Dhardo Rinpoche will lead a Stupa Dedication ceremony at Aryaloka Buddhist Center, 11 am (please arrive by 10:50 am). As there is limited parking due to all the snow, there will be a couple of shuttle vans from Newmarket Elementary School from 10 am - 10:45 am, 243 S Main St, Newmarket, NH 03857.

Here are more details from Shrijnana:


Dear Friends, Mitras, and Order members,

We are expecting many people to be at the stupa dedication this Sunday for a festive celebration. However, our parking lots are limited in size, especially with the large amount of snow this winter; Street parking on Shady Lane and Heartwood Circle is also limited due to snow.

To make sure everyone can park and attend the dedication, we have arranged a shuttle service from Newmarket Elementary School. We are asking everyone to park in the Elementary School Parking lot and a ride will be provided from there to Aryaloka. This shuttle service will start at 10 AM and the last shuttle will leave the school at 10:45 AM to insure a prompt start to the dedication. Rides from Aryaloka back to the Elementary School will be given at the conclusion of the dedication ceremony, the conclusion of the pot luck lunch, and the conclusion of the guru puja in the afternoon.

Newmarket Elementary School is located at 243 S Main St, which is very close to Grant Rd. From South Main street, turn onto Grant Road, then take the first left onto Durrell Drive. From Durrell Drive, turn left into the school parking lot. Please park in the front of the school so that the shuttle drivers can find everyone easily.

Immense gratitude is being extended to the Newmarket School District for allowing us to park in the school parking lot, and the many individuals who organized the shuttle service and will be driving the vans.

With Metta,
