    Finding Happiness Within Through The Buddha's Teachings

    led by Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche

    Chua Vietnam, 68 Bradeen Street, Roslindale

    Happiness isn't something we need to find or achieve. It is the very core of our being. When we experience stress, anxiety, unhappiness or any other form of discomfort, our mind is not in its natural state. By learning how to reconnect with our true nature we can discover the happiness that lies within us and that is, in fact, the very essence of who we are.

    In this day of mindfulness, meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will introduce Buddhist methods for working with mind through meditation in order to experience our natural state of happiness and inner peace. No previous background with meditation or Buddhist teachings is necessary.

    Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche is a meditation master in the Nyingma lineage of the Buddhist tradition. He studied for ten years at Lharang Gar in Serta, eastern Tibet, with his teacher, the great Jigmed Phuntsok Rinpoche, who is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest Dzogchen meditation masters of the 20th century.

    Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and is the founder and spiritual director of Pristine Mind Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping people live fully, die fearlessly, and transform every area of their lives through the Buddha’s teachings. He is currently writing his first book as well as traveling throughout North America speaking on meditation and spirituality. For more information on Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche visit
