On the anniversary of the Parinirvana (death of an enlightened being) of the founder of Shambhala----Vidyadhara, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the whole community is invited to the Sadhana of Mahamudra Feast Practice.

There will be a celebratory period during the feast where offerings of poems, readings, remembrances and stories of the impact felt from the teachings and activities of Trungpa Rinpoche are offered. If you would like to make an offering see below for contact info. 

We will eat potluck style, please bring food or drink to share, to RSVP see the contact below for food.

If you have a personal or special picture of Trungpa Rinpoche we will have a table set up to share these.
