Parinirvana Day: Celebrating Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

On April 4th, we celebrate the anniversary of the parinirvana (death of an enlightened being) of the Vidyadhara, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

On this special occasion, the whole community is invited to a feast practice of the profound Sadhana of Mahamudra. Normally restricted to advanced students, this feast practice is a rare occasion for all members of the community to join together. There will be a celebratory period during the feast section where devotional poems, songs, dances and other remembrances of the founder of Shambhala are offered.
