Our teachings and practices are based on The Buddha Path, a daily practice manual written by Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche that contains the essence of all the Sutrayana, Vajrayana, and Dzogchen teachings of the Buddha. The Buddha Path also refers to Dharma, the cause of both temporary and lasting happiness, which is contained in five kinds of good thinking — renunciation, compassion, faith, love and wisdom.

Buddha Path app

The Dzogchen Shri Singha Foundation has just created an app to practice The Buddha Path on your cellphone or tablet! This app provides invaluable resources to aid Dharma practitioners in their learning, contemplation, and meditation on the essence of Buddha Shakyamuni’s entire teachings.

How to Prevent Fear and Protect Ourselves: 100% Cautious 0% Fear

Our compassionate teacher, H.E. Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche, has taken steps to help Sangha around the world to care for themselves and others during this time of worldwide spread of COVID-19:

“At this time, many people around the world have fear and suffering because of the novel coronavirus. During this time, it is very good to pray and practice Dharma more. As said by the Buddha, during earthquakes, natural disasters, war, epidemics, or famine, those who practice Dharma and help others create immeasurable merit that will benefit oneself and all beings.

“The fundamental characteristic of the minds of beings is hope and fear. All beings always hope for happiness and fear suffering. Now there is a new disease spreading and everyone is afraid. Sentient beings already have fear. Now they have more fear than usual. We must manage and reduce our fear and worry, focus on solutions, and take refuge in Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha more than ever. Do not fixate on fear or worry, or overreact to the situation.”
