“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 is an international Buddhist association of non-profit nationally registered societies and charities, with the principal intention of preserving the Buddhist teachings, as well as increasing an awareness and understanding of the Buddha's teachings, beyond the limits of cultures and tradition.
