Parinirvana Day: Celebrating Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche


April 5 / 7:00 PM - April 5 / 10:00 PM

On the anniversary of the parinirvana (death of an enlightened being) of the Vidyadhara, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the whole community is invited to practice the profound Sadhana of Mahamudra.


Following that will be popcorn, pizza and the movie Crazy Wisdom.


Crazy Wisdom explores the arrival of Tibetan Buddhism in America through the story of Chogyam Trungpa, who landed in the U.S. in 1970. Trungpa became renowned for translating ancient Buddhist concepts into language and ideas that Westerners could understand and shattered preconceived notions about how an enlightened teacher should behave. Initially rejected, his teachings are now recognized by western philosophers and spiritual leaders as authentic and profound.
