Dear Westchester Buddhist Center Community,

From time to time we would like to bring to your attention to other organizations whose activities complement ours, and These are two online resources that share our mission to preserve and propagate the teachings and practices of Tibetan Buddhism and in particular those of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

In the Dharma,

Derek, Jane and John


The Chronicles of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

The Chronicles is a celebration of Trungpa Rinpoche’s life and teachings. At its core, the Chronicles is an oral history project, recording the recollections of his students and others who knew him. It is also a forum for news, tributes, articles and interviews that trace his legacy and influences into the current era. The Chronicles serves the students of Trungpa Rinpoche, members of the extended Shambhala community, students of the many authentic Buddhist masters currently teaching in the West, and people who are inspired by his life and teachings for a wide variety of reasons. This all-inclusive, or pan-sangha, is Trungpa Rinpoche's extended community of students. Just as Padmasambhava is the essential guru for almost all Tibetans, Trungpa Rinpoche fulfills that role for a growing number of dharma practitioners in the West.

The Chronicles is a public site. All of its content is available free of charge. Visit us here:
