H.E. Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche
From my perspective, Buddhism is not a religion that demands blind faith in dogmatic beliefs. Neither is it a philosophy that traps us in an idealized world, nor a cultural phenomenon that stubbornly clings to old traditions. Buddhism in fact is a systematic methodology of practices through which we free others and ourselves from suffering and attain real happiness.
True happiness is achieved through the direct understanding of the way things are, through compassionately working for the ultimate happiness of others and through confidently developing our previously dormant capacity for enlightenment.
All of this is based on the understanding of selflessness, which is the foundation of Buddhism.      - Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche

Milarepa Center
- The first part of the Mahamudra Hermitage Project. The center will be dedicated to training in the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition. With short-term retreats for individuals and groups, and traditional longer-term retreats for dedicated practitioners, it will be a place for the transmission of ancient Buddhist teachings in ways that are responsive to a 21st Century way of life.
