Dear Friends of Jewel Heart:

As we reach the close of 2017, we offer our best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year.

As many of you know, this year we lost our guide and spiritual friend, Gelek Rimpoche. But Rimpoche left us with a mission: to ensure that Jewel Heart remains a reliable source for spiritual study and practice.

Looking back on the past 12 months, we accomplished a lot together.

This is what Gelek Rimpoche set in motion through Jewel Heart, and this is what we are bringing about as we move forward based on the vast resources of transcripts and recordings he left us:

It's been a busy time keeping everything moving in the direction Rimpoche set out for us.

We want to thank each and every one of you who has worked so hard to help make Jewel Heart what it is today. Every member plays a crucial role and without you none of this would be possible. That is our tribute to Rimpoche.

We look forward with enthusiasm to the future of Jewel Heart and we hope you will too.

Please consider continuing to support Rimpoche's work by contributing to Jewel Heart today.

With all our best wishes,

Jewel Heart

Message From Philip Glass

It is important now that we take a moment to reflect upon the role of the Three Precious Jewels.

We, as members of Jewel Heart are, in fact, part of the Sangha, the third, but not least of the Three Precious Jewels. As such it is most important for us to understand and appreciate the role of the Sangha in the Buddhist tradition. Like the power of the Lineage, the power of the Sangha has been essential in sustaining and preserving a Buddhist view in the world today. Furthermore, the strength of the Sangha is a result of the collective commitment of the individuals who make up it’s membership. One can say that through this collective commitment the Sangha has been able to provide refuge and protection for it’s members. In this way the Buddha has fashioned the third part of the Three Precious Jewels which has, no doubt, been so important in insuring that his teachings would spread and flourish throughout the ages.

As members of The Jewel Heart community and because of our connection through Gelek Rimpoche’s Lineage, we share a real and authentic connection with the larger Buddhist Sangha.

This is both a blessing and a responsibility.
