“The vast majority of us perform two activities almost instinctively; we like to throw out rubbish and love collecting goodies. This universal habitual pattern can be usefully employed as a format on the spiritual path”

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Founded in 1989 by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, Siddhartha’s Intent (SI) supports Rinpoche’s buddhadharma activities worldwide by organizing teachings and retreats, distributing and archiving recorded teachings, transcribing, editing and translating manuscripts and practice texts, and establishing a global community committed to continual study and practice.



In his new book, 'Living is Dying', Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche offers a broad spectrum of advice about how to prepare for dying, death and beyond no matter who you are. Available as a FREE DOWNLOAD now.
