Public Talk: Understanding Shambhala

with Jay Lippman
January 18 / 7:00 PM - January 18 / 9:00 PM

Please join us for this public talk by visiting teacher Jay Lippman. The topic, "Understanding Shambhala", is an overview of the Shambhala teachings and their relevance to us.

"The Shambhala teachings are deep and profound. They address the fundamental issues of our time, and teach us entirely new ways of dealing with ourselves and our world."

Join Mr. Lippman as he reflects on these teachings, and shares his own understanding of this unique tradition, in terms of view, meditation and conduct.

Jay Lippman has been a student of Shambhala since 1974 and is a senior teacher and advanced meditation instructor. In addition to being a student of Chogyam Trungpa and Sakyong Mipham, Jay is also a Vajrayana student of the yogi/scholar Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso. Khenpo Rinpoche, at the invitation of Sakyong Mipham, taught the sutras and tantras to senior students in Shambhala for many years. Jay was directed by Khenpo Tsultrim to teach a variety of specific courses in order to clarify key points of Buddhist teachings for Western students.

Jay is known for his genuine commitment to serious dharma study and practice, for his sense of humor, clarity and accessible style. In recent years Jay has become a popular teacher in the San Francisco Bay area. He teaches at Bay area Shambhala centers several times each year.
