Siddhartha’s Intent Helpline Now Available

Published on 30 July 2021

"We need to institute some sort of regular reminders not to be rude and always to be polite and accommodating. Of course, that will also give us as practitioners an opportunity to be patient and compassionate, and to practise what we read, hear and teach."- Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

The purpose is to maintain a kind and compassionate community, and to avoid disharmony in the sangha through practising what we learn and teach. As sangha members, our main aim is to take care of each other and to help each other along the path. “… if someone feels unfairly taken advantage of, we… need a group of people whom that person can reach out to and call.”- Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

If you, as a sangha member, have a complaint about a wrongdoing by a representative of Siddhartha's Intent that you are unable to resolve directly, you are invited to contact a mediator who is appointed directly by Rinpoche and who is ready to hear you with no judgement and in complete confidentiality. Help requests may be initiated by contacting a private email address accessible only by Rinpoche’s lead mediator: supportenglish@siddharthasintent.org *

* Note: Currently mediation support is available only in English, but may be available in other major languages in the future.
