Wisdom Blog

The Wisdom Blog section contains advice and instruction from Rinpoche and his senior instructors. Each of these short reminders contains essential guidance to enrich and support your practice.

We will be posting a new audio file or video with supplementary information every week. These short recollections provide a solid foundation of support for your dharma practice. Rinpoche often reminds us to check our own progress, measured by our personal transformation. His advice is to use all the tools that are available to us. We can do this by drawing inspiration from authentic teachings to enhance our dharma practice. These Wisdom Blogs provide concrete methods to use in our enhancement and self-examination process.

Please add this section to your favorites and check back to visit our blog often. We also encourage you to make use of the General Student Forum to discuss these teachings. We’d love to hear how you incorporate the techniques and how they help you maintain your practice.
