Lama Tharchin Rinpoche teaches on the meaning and importance of sangha and answers questions about the role of accumulating merit, advice for avoiding politics in the dharma, and how to examine a teacher and what to do if we feel we’ve made a connection with a negative teacher. Teaching given at Sakya Dechen Ling, Katherine Pfaff’s, in West Oakland, California, December 17, 1994. Requested and recorded by Sheppard Powell.

Note: The recording sound level with people’s questions is very low. We’ve tried to increase the volume without causing too much distortion, but it is difficult to hear the questions (though not Rinpoche’s answers!). (edited by pd)
