Welcome to View, the Rigpa Journal

This magazine combines the names of our two previous titles, View and The Rigpa Journal, and it aims to continue in exactly the same spirit.

In future, we will keep you up to date with the progress of Rigpa's projects and activities; bring you teachings and interviews with Sogyal Rinpoche and other masters; and follow His Holiness the Dalai Lama as he continues to carry his message of compassion, peace and human values to all corners of the world.
