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.
