What to do at India's Buddhist Holy Sites

Preview of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche's New Book: What to do at India's Buddhist Holy Sites

January 1, 2010

Siddhartha's Intent and Khyentse Foundation jointly announce that a preview of
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche's advice, What to do at India's Buddhist Holy Sites, is
available as a free PDF download upon formal request.

"The aim of all Buddhist practice is to catch a glimpse of the awakened state. Going
on pilgrimage, soaking up the sacred atmosphere of holy places and mingling with
other pilgrims are simply different ways of trying to achieve that glimpse."
