What is the proper etiquette for attending a teaching?

Please plan to arrive a few minutes early for any teaching event. This will give you time to sign in, find a seat, and get comfortable. When Rinpoche enters the room to teach, students typically stand out of respect, and take their seats after he sits. In most cases, we remove our shoes prior to entering the room where the teaching is held; you may wish to wear or bring warm socks. We listen quietly during the teaching, and often Rinpoche provides an opportunity to ask questions at the end.
