So then you see the inseparable nature of the emptiness and compassion. The nature of compassion is emptiness; the nature of emptiness is compassion. No separation. Realize the nature of the mind right there. So it neither exists nor does not exist. You just see that. Nothing exists independently. And yet within that, everything is manifest. You see all the sentient beings wander in samsara through delusion, without understanding or realizing these things. So of all those methods, whatever we are experiencing, realization is the most important. Without that, this introduction will not lead to any good place. So realization is the way by which to become free from the boundaries of samsara.
-- H.E. Garchen Rinpoche

The Aurora community is a gathering place for the practice, teachings and study of Tibetan Buddhism. We were given the blessing to provide the space and offer instruction by our spiritual directors Khenchen Gyaltsen Rinpoche and H.E. Garchen Rinpoche.

Practice sessions are hosted by Bill & Kelly O'Brien. The environment is relaxed and family oriented. We open our home for people new to the dharma or  experienced dharma practitioners.
