The Wheel of the Dharma, by David Schultz

Shang Rinpoche Blog
David, USA

In Buddhism, there are the Three Jewels:

The Buddha
The Sangha (community)
The Dharma (the teachings)

At the Tea House, these three jewels are represented in Rinpoche, the community, and the teachings offered. Shang Rinpoche embodies and channels the spirit of the Buddha, the community of expats and locals alike make up a modern-day sangha, and the the teachings of Rinpoche and practices of his disciples put the Wheel of the Dharma into motion.  

Although my time at the Tea House was brief, only a few years from 2007 to 2009, and my depth of practice limited, the wheel of my personal spirituality was certainly put into motion during my time spent at the tea house.
