Laura & KYR

With the invaluable support and guidance from her teachers, Venerable Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche, Laura Weiss launched CompassionRocks in 2014.

CompassionRocks aims to deepen and enrich the human connections we all share. The stones we engrave are expressions of love that hold profound layers of meaning and benefit. By dedicating a stone to someone or something you love and having the stones placed at the temple, you’ll become part of a collective effort that spreads compassion and positive energy throughout the world. The stones represent a tangible and beautiful way to promote reflection and contemplation for years to come.

“These stones carry tremendous positive energy throughout the world, as the stones catch the wind.”

— Ven. Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche

Your donation will help ensure the completion and longevity of the temple.
