Yogi Tsoru Dechen Rinpoche Foundation

Promoting the Dharma

 THE YTDR FOUNDATION was founded by Tulku Tsori Rinpoche to provide access to the Buddha DharmA by offering Compassion and Wisdom to all sentient beings.  



The Tonglen meditation is a Tibetan Buddhist practice for overcoming the fear of suffering and for dissolving the tightness of our heart. Primarily it is a method for awakening the compassion that is inherent in all of us.

Teaching on Shinay meditation led by Tibetan Lama Tulku Tsori Rinpoche. As taught in the Tibetan tradition, meditation has two stages. The first is called in Sanskrit, shamata or in Tibetan, shinay. Shiné or shinay means restful or relaxed or "tranquility meditation" -- "resting in naturalness," "calm abiding." We talk about shinay, the shinay is a kind of foundation for meditation practice because if we don't develop quietness somehow we can't really do any kind of meditation because if we want to make a good painting we must have a clean canvas so we can make the creation on top of it. Like that if our mind is complicated and disturbed it is very difficult to work until it so the first step for entire meditation practice is to develop the state of quietness, calmness the togetherness.
