Nyinthün with The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma Read-A-Thon

April 21 / 9:00 AM - April 21 / 5:00 PM wake up from the dream of bewilderment and suffering, we first need to sit still and take a deep breath. Peaceful abiding is that deep breath, a way to strip away the chaos of bewilderment and find some basic sanity... with this healthy sense of self we can look more deeply into the meaning of our being.

- Sakyong Mipham, Rinpoche

 Open to all!

This special day of meditation will include readings of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma. Shambhala Centers and Groups all over the world are gathering to read sections of these volumes. Between April 4 and June 21 (Midsummer's Day), the entire three volumes will be “resounded” by centers and individuals, if we all join together to make this international Read-a-thon happen.

This new three-volume work presents a complete map of the Tibetan Buddhist path from beginning to end, as taught by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It is based on the teachings presented at the annual three-month meditation and study retreats known as the Vajradhatu Seminaries, which he led every summer from 1973 to 1986. This remarkable material—which has never before been published—presents Trungpa Rinpoche's teaching on the hinayana, mahayana, and vajrayana in a way that joins the traditional concepts with contemplative understanding.

The day will conclude with a reception.
