Yeshe Khorlo USA is a Colorado based religious non-profit. Established in 1995 under the direction of Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche, 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.
In the United States, the main center of Yeshe Khorlo is Choying Dzong, a Nyingma Buddhist retreat and meditation center located in Crestone, Colorado.
In addition to the Crestone center, Yeshe Khorlo has regional sanghas in Los Angeles-CA, Austin-TX, Santa Fe-NM, Seattle-WA, Boulder-CO and Aspen-CO.
