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

We live within an ocean of sentient beings—moving, talking, sitting, sleeping, drinking coffee, driving cars, loving, and crying. We must hold this samadhi within the vast expanse of moving mind.
