Together with our sangha friends in Washington D.C., Nalandabodhi Philadelphia recently had the good fortune of hosting our teacher, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.  As usual, Rinpoche gave profound yet easy to grasp teachings on working with our minds emotions and bringing our everyday experience to the path of awakening.  He pointed out that instead of stopping or indulging in strong emotions like anger, anxiety, or fear, we can explore them, giving ourselves time to feel their texture and observe our experience, as it is, and recognize that their basic nature is wisdom.

Having Rinpoche on the East Coast with us in this way was wonderful. We make aspirations that these blessings can continue and that we can put these teachings into practice in a way that benefits both ourselves and others. Many all beings benefit!

Stay tuned for some photos and video of the teachings in D.C.!
