“The main purpose of spiritual path is awakening. This awakening isn't some supernatural awakening. It's awakening to the truth. We usually shy away from the truth, and so we constantly get ourselves bogged down. Because of this, the elements and ingredients of the path are especially designed to dismantle our strong habits, including our emotional habits, ideas, values, and principles.”
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
Siddhartha's Intent is established as a registered charity in both Canada and the USA with the mission of promoting the study and practice of Buddhism according to the Khyentse lineage. Also, a Siddhartha's Intent society has recently formed in Mexico. Teaching programs led by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche are scheduled at various venues throughout North America.
Urban groups in the USA and Canada offer regular sessions of meditation practice as well as guided study of Buddhist philosophy.
Individual and group retreats are supported from March 15 to December 15 at Sea to Sky Retreat Centre (SSRC) in British Columbia, Canada.
