Yeshe Khorlo Centers

Gangteng Rinpoche’s association of Dharma – Yeshe Khorlo: The Wheel Of Primordial Wisdom

The mission and goal of Yeshe Khorlo is to cultivate the growth of the Buddha Dharma through three activities:

  • Study and teaching (online Shedra)
  • Accomplishing dharma practice
  • Practical application through the work of helping and giving

The “turning of the wheel of dharma” most commonly refers to the three turnings given by Buddha Shakyamuni. These were the teachings on the Four Noble Truths of suffering, the origin of suffering, the cessation of suffering and the path; the teachings on emptiness and Mahdyamika or the Great Middle Way, and the teachings on Buddha Nature or Tathagatagarbha.

Yeshe Khorlo has communities in:

In the United States, the main center of Yeshe Khorlo is Choying Dzong, a Nyingma Buddhist retreat and meditation center located in Crestone, Colorado.
