Verse by Khenpo Rinpoche
If there should arise thoughts of passion or hatred-- obstructions to resting without agitation in the mind itself-- through meditation on the subtle impermanence of that object itself, you will pacify that thought.
composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche Rocky Mountain Dharma Center, August 1991 translated by Michele Martin

News from projetsahleo:
- in honor of Rinpoche’s 80th birthday, we have lauched a dharma event called
Le Festival Vagabond d'Art Contemplatif (FVAC) where students of the dharma will gather to share their creations related to Dharma studies and practice.
The first edition took place in Quebec City and there is a second edition which will take place in St-Hubert de Rivière-du-Loup North of Quebec City.
In 2004 while visiting Tenerife, Khenpo Rimpoche challenged me to a short debate. Like a sabre cutting through confusion, he started this unexpected moment with a pregnant dharma question about doubts, which stopped my breath and mind. Grasping for air, I looked straight into the accumulation of knowledge and meditation experience he had fostered all these years, and answered in accordance with the teachings on emptiness. He laughed and started his recitation of some traditional verses with a loud 'la- me', which I thought meant that he did not agree, but he was so pleased and the moment so striking that I had to let go.
Whether you’re a professional musician or an enthusiastic amateur, we warmly invite your creativity. Take any of the lyrics in Songs of Realization and try new melodies or different arrangements of the existing melodies.
Imagine what it would be like to sing our beloved songs in different musical styles, especially ones from our 21st century culture:
rock, jazz, gospel, folk, blues, hip-hop, reggae, you name it!
