Following In
Buddha's Footsteps

A worldwide network of buddhist practitioners studying and practising under the guidance of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche.

Our job is to develop confidence in the fact that our own true nature has exactly the same potential as that of the Buddha, and that all we need to do to mature that potential is follow Siddhartha's example and apply the right methods.
