Independent Meditation Center Guide

"Meditation teaches you how to loosen your monkey-grip on your experience and create a kind of inner spaciousness and relaxation by letting go of control and allowing things to be the way they are."

As one of the many members of the Summit Dharma Center whose life has been transformed in such a positive way by the authentic dharma teachings of Michael Gregory and Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, I would like to offer the following comment to the anonymous Dharma Practitioner who reviewed our Center: I am very sorry that you have not been able to fathom the teachings of these two extraordinary men. I feel much compassion for you, and I wish you good luck on your spiritual journey.

I completely believe in free-expression even when it is negative. I think that somebody who would say something like this though without leaving their name so that dialogue may ensue is not of much service to anyone. We have received glowing reviews from the N.Y. Times, Snow Lion (the most recent issue our center is on the front cover along with our precious teacher Ringu Tulku Rinpoche). Every now and then I suppose someone may become angry with our organization - but I have not seen this in many years now. We have a large organization with more than a dozen centers and over 400 members in weekly attendance, so I suppose every now and then someone may become disenchanted. We try our best to spread loving-kindness and inevitably we probably don't succeed with everyone. I apologize to this person, although I don't know what I've done and hope that he/she may forgive us for whatever problems may have occurred.
