KHENCHEN RINPOCHE, RESIDENT LAMA HAS RETIRED IN MADISON!

With our community you can begin to relax and return to yourself – to open the heart and mind to bigger possibilities. We offer ancient teachings for modern times.

A MESSAGE FROM KHENCHEN
MAY 21, 2021

“I have given you many teachings over these past few months.  Now, I want you to take some time to study, contemplate and put the teachings into practice. If I just keep giving teachings, these precious teachings will not be valued. So before I teach again, I want you to practice! Then we will see!”  ~Khenchen Rinpoche

So please, everyone, continue to study, practice and meditate!
