Wisdom Blog

The Wisdom Blog section contains advice and instruction from Phakchok Rinpoche and his senior instructors. Each short blog post contains essential guidance and tips for living a more meaningful life.  Posts are archived in general categories, ranging from beginners to more advanced.   Topics include advice on handling emotions and balancing priorities.   We also share general Buddhist knowledge and introduce Buddhist art, festivals, and ritual.

We post new audio, video and written teachings 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.  And we do this by measuring  our personal transformation. His advice is to use all the tools that are available to us. Thus we draw inspiration from authentic teachings to enhance our dharma practice. These Wisdom Blogs remind us of concrete methods to use in our enhancement and self-examination process.

Also, remember to visit the Global Sangha Discussion forum to discuss these teachings or to post questions.  Many of the blogs have reflection questions or exercises.  Please engage with the teaching by posting your comments below each post, or use the forum.  We can all benefit as a global sangha from sharing our study and reflection. We’d love to hear how you incorporate the techniques and how they help you maintain your practice.

Finally, if you have other questions or topics that you would like to see featured here, please let us know. The entire Samye team wants to support you along the path!
