In the Vajrayana Guru Rinpocheis regarded as  the second Buddha. He arrived in Tibet from Oddiyana, the present day Swat Valley in Pakistan around 780 CE at the invitation of King Trisong Detsen.  Guru Rinpoche established Tantric Buddhism firmly in Tibet where he is revered as a totally enlightened being, a buddha. Through his form, primordial wisdom manifests in the world to benefit all sentient beings. His manifestation is beyond time and always available to those who follow his teachings.

Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig) Compassion Practice is on the 2ndand 4thSundays at 11am. The Practice of Avalokiteshvara was given by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and is best described in his book,” The Union Mahamudra and Dzogchen.”  It is easily learned and one can give rise to the energy of Compassion through chanting and meditating with this practice.
