Tricycle Retreat: Mental Strength in the 21st Century

Tricycle Magazine has prepared a pre-filmed online course with Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche entitled, Mental Strength in the 21st Century. During this course Rinpoche will explain the value of a spiritual path such as the dharma in modern life as well as how to implement effective and practical ways to transform our daily experiences into a path of greater contentment, compassion, and inner strength. These teachings are suitable for non-buddhists and buddhists alike.

Six Vajra Verses Accumulation

Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche has asked his sangha as well as all who are inspired to take part to accumulate 100,000,000 (one hundred million) recitations of the Six Vajra Verse supplication to be finished by December 2015. 

This blessed supplication was revealed as a treasure by the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa in the 19th century. The first three lines are supplications to three forms of Guru Rinpoche, the fourth line is requesting Guru Rinpoche to grant blessings, the fifth line is requesting that all levels of obstacles may be removed, and the sixth line is requesting that all wishes may be spontaneously accomplished.  

We need 100,000,000 (one hundred million) recitations by December 2015.


We have accumulated 68,000,922 recitations so far.

Guru Rinpoche Day Teachings

29 January 2015: Quotes from the King of Samadhi Sutra

Dear Friends Near and Far, 

I hope you are all well wherever you may be. On this precious Guru Rinpoche Day, the first in 2015, I would like to share with you all some quotations from The King of Samadhi Sutra, a very profound teaching given by Buddha Shakyamuni. 

In the eleventh chapter of the sutra, Buddha explains: 

When blessed with clarity, you will come to know the genuine limit. 
And when you understand the genuine limit, there is nothing you cannot explain. 
By knowing this one thing, you come to know all. 
By seeing this one thing, you come to see all.
