Guru Rinpoche Day Teachings

Phakchok Rinpoche sends out short inspiring teachings to all students via email on every Guru Rinpoche day. Rinpoche often uses these teachings to answer frequently asked questions. Also, he suggests topics that remind us to bring our minds home in the midst of our busy lives.

Weekly Reflections

Meditation needs to become continuous. Although we speak of meditation in terms of formal sessions and the post-meditation state, we ultimately will go beyond the division of these two.
