Refuge in the Three Jewels — the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha — is at the heart of Buddhist practice. Students of Chhoje Rinpoche’s meet regularly for meditation and discourse. As a group of practitioners, we support one another’s dharma practice, sharing our experiences and creating a conducive environment for deepening our understanding of basic sanity — enlightened Buddha nature.
