Chöying Dzong, the name given by Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche in 2001, means Fortress of Dharmata. Dharmata is a Sanskrit word that refers to the innate pure nature of all phenomena and the very essence of mind itself. Dzong, or fortress, refers to the vessel or mandala that holds that space and maintains its innate purity for all who enter. The temple is always referred to as ‘Chöying Dzong’, while the overall organization is Yeshe Khorlo. In addition to the Crestone center, Yeshe Khorlo has a regional sangha in Los Angeles, CA.
