"While I am away, I urge you to study and practice the Dharma diligently. I would also like to recommend that you make an effort to get together and discuss the teachings and do the practices that I have shown you:
Guru Yoga tsok
Shakyamuni Buddha
I would like you to alternate the practices. This will help you to build our Dharma community and support each other's practices so you can grow together as Dharma brothers and sisters."  – Sogan Rinpoche, 11/3/13, Oakland, CA
